Course content

Gain the expertise to determine if buildings are achieving their required energy-efficiency targets and improve their results.

The energy performance of today's new buildings must withstand far more scrutiny than ever before. Those involved or investing in construction projects will need an increasing awareness of these factors to maintain compliance with the law, as tougher EU and UK directives for building performance are drawn up and legislated.

You will use the latest technologies to evaluate building performance, including software to model 2D thermal movement or track moisture. You will also be exposed to real-life testing sites and the methods used to investigate heat loss, heat transfer, moisture development and thermal bridges.

Your course will provide an essential platform if you are wanting to evaluate the energy efficiency of buildings, or if you want to get involved in building forensics or surveying.
