Course content

Develop the knowledge and skills to give existing buildings a sustainable future. You’ll take a holistic approach in the sustainability debate, balancing technical engineering solutions with a business case. In increasing drive towards low carbon and sustainable solutions in the built environment, you’ll address management and financial realities alongside societal expectations.

Achieving the goal of sustainable development continues to be one of the major global issues of our era. How to reduce the adverse effects that buildings have on the environment while improving overall economic performance and society's wellbeing is the challenge that lies at the heart of the EU and UK Government's sustainability strategies. Here, you'll examine this challenge and gain a thorough understanding of the inter-relationship between sustainability drivers and solutions to a more sustainable built environment.

You'll examine the latest developments in sustainable technology and their role in the refurbishment of existing buildings, including the development of new policy guidance, management tools and business models.

You'll also look at the relationship between people and built environment and the inter-relationship between behaviour, engineering technology and management processes that determines a sustainable future built environment.
