Learn to Create More Sustainable Buildings

Building Construction can impact human health and wellbeing in so many ways, both physically and psychologically.

With better choices about materials used in construction, there can be less risk from toxins and allergens in the internal and external environment of a building. With more intelligent design, a building can be better ventilated, have healthier oxygen levels and hygiene risks can be minimised. The structural soundness of buildings and their surrounds can also deteriorate if the build is not well informed in planning and construction.

Learn more ways to make buildings less risky for construction and maintenance issues developing causing reducing value and increasing costs. This course is an opportunity for anyone working in the construction industry to broaden and deepen their scope of skills - and in doing so, expand the scope, nature and quality of work they can offer clients.
