Mike Wye & Associates Ltd have been involved with traditional, sustainable and ecological construction projects for nearly a quarter of a century. In that time, our team have acquired a wealth of experience and knowledge which we share and discuss in a series of seminars as part of our CPD days.
Our new sustainable Design Centre at our headquarters in Buckland Filleigh, Devon provides a dedicated venue to learn about building conservation, sustainable construction and specification during our CPD days.
We will be shortly releasing our new training dates and if you are interested in attending our CPD day then please contact us.
Here are a few comments from past students:
“Very professional & very well presented.”
“Thank you all so much for the day. It was great.”
“Excellent…I will recommend to other architects.”
“I thought this was a very informative & interesting course. Cannot fault it -thank you.”
“Covered more than I expected – good detail.”
The times shown are as a guide only as questions may lead to an over run on some topics. For further details or to book a course please contact us.
