Posted by on Aug 15, 2012 in news | Comments Off on Passivhaus Designer course, Huddersfield

We will be running the AECB Passivhaus Designer course at Green Building Store in Huddersfield during Sept/Oct this year.  This is a great opportunity for those in the North East and West to have training in a venue near them and training at GBS will mean delegates will be able to get first hand experience of Passivhaus Windows, Doors, MVHR’s, airtightness materials and other Passivhaus certified products in their workshops.

The trainers will be Eric Parks, Bill Butcher, Mark Siddall, Nick Grant and Peter Warm – all Passivhaus Designers apart from Peter who is a Certifier.  Bill Butcher is a director of Green Building Store and Green Building Company and project leader of the Denby Dale Passivhaus project. Originally trained as a quantity surveyor, he has over 35 years’ building experience, including construction of the Longwood low-energy house in the early 1990s.  Mark Siddall is an architect and lecturer at the University of Northumbria.  His design of 25 Passivhauses at Racecourse estate Sunderland is one of the largest Passivhaus developments in the UK and is now built.   Nick Grant and Andrew Farr will be teaching the services, both have abundant experience in large UK projects.   Eric Parks has been involved with many Passivhaus and sustainability projects in the US and UK.
