Join us for this great opportunity to learn from the experts about products and systems suitable for insulating 'traditional' solid stone and brick walls.
Join us ‘virtually’ for this great opportunity to learn from the experts about products and systems suitable for insulating 'traditional' solid stone and brick walls so prevalent in Cumbria and the surrounding area.
Ilias Igoumenidis, Technical Support Engineer from 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 then be a short break before a ‘project case study’ of a West Cumbrian cottage renovation, presented by Fintan Wallace, Architectural Technologist with Ecological Building Systems.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions both during and after the presentation.
We will then give you a virtual tour of our training centre with the demonstration walls of the different ‘breathable’ insulation systems with some practical hints and tips on installation and best practice.
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 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.
