Solid Wall Insulation with Nick Parsons
28th April, 5:30 pm – 6:45 pm
Nick Parsons has worked for over 30 years in energy-efficient and sustainable building and renewable energy. For 10 years from 2000-2010 he ran a community-sector project in Sheffield promoting and demonstrating all aspects of sustainable building based in an eco-refurbished terraced house, before going freelance in December 2010.
Nick is a regular tutor in sustainable building and renewable energy at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, Wales and with the Carbon Co-op.
In addition he carries out home energy surveys to assess potential energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy installations and provides consultancy and project management services to individuals, small businesses, and community organisations.
Nick will give a 15 minute introduction to his experience in the sector leaving us with 45 minutes for a Q&A and discussion. Please be aware that Nick cannot give advice on specific aspects of your building project (this isn’t a free consultation) but he can help you understand key principles and what to consider when installing solid wall insulation.
