Join us for this great opportunity to learn from the experts about products and systems suitable for insulating 'traditional' solid stone and brick walls.
Ecological Building Systems will discuss the impact of moisture on solid stone/brick walls and how walls function before and after applying insulation.
You’ll learn about the importance of moisture management and best practice examples using breathable materials to protect your building’s structure for the future.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the presentation.
We’ll have a break for refreshments and then we'll move on to a practical demonstration in the dedicated training area. You’ll see how the various materials discussed during the presentation are installed and applied.
The highly knowledgeable and experienced technical team from Ecological Building Systems will be available throughout. After the demo, they’ll be happy to discuss any specific queries you might have about your own project.

Making your building airtight: A practical workshop- This hands-on training covers installing insulation and airtightness membranes, tapes and seals. Airtightness is an issue that cannot be ignored, and as we get ever-closer to zero-carbon homes, excellent standards will have to be achieved in all new homes. Achieving airtightness is important for the energy efficiency of dwellings and the comfort of occupants. Without it, the insulation installed will not perform to the calculated U-value.
