We are pleased to be joined by Neil Turner from Ecological Building Systems for an ‘Ask the Expert’ retrofit construction webinar

Neil is the technical Sales Manager at Ecological Building Systems and has extensive experience in the building products sector. Neil advises architects, contractors and timber frame specialists on the specification of sustainable insulation products and has been involved in numerous sustainable projects throughout the UK. Neil will give a 15 minute introduction to his experience in the sector leaving us with 45 minutes for a Q&A and discussion.

Neil’s areas of expertise are:

  • Natural Insulation Products: Manufacture, certification and specifying these in a wide variety of constructions (roof, timber/masonry walls, floors etc).
  • Retrofit on solid masonry walls: Use of breathable, water capillary active insulation materials
  • Air Tightness detailing: Including New Build Passivhaus, Enerphit projects
  • Acoustics in retrofits and new build

Please be aware that Neil 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 widen your knowledge of sustainable building materials.

This event is for main contractors, general builders, joiners, designers, architects and consultants keen to deepen their knowledge around retrofit.
