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.
Only £30+VAT per person
