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 on CPD days.
The 2018 Traditional Building CPD day will include:
- Introduction to Lime and Example Specifications.
- Natural and Traditional Paint and Decorating Products
- Sustainable Insulation
- Limecrete Floors
- Lunch and refreshments!
Here are a few comments from past attendees:
“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.”
