[This course] has enabled me to have educated debate with designers and engineers on how a building will perform … These professionals have been grateful to have someone that knows about thermal bridging or allowing for services such as ventilation in the design stage. This has then made the build easier...[and] has seen me win a couple of tenders where competitors didn’t know about heating demands and the importance of good design.Lenny Basham, Basham Building
