Sustainable Housing Course success!

Women from Sheffield Homes took part in our successful Sustainable Housing Course this February.

Sheffield Homes staff surveying a property

Twelve women from Sheffield Homes took part in a short course delivered by the Women in SET team, looking at eco-design and sustainable housing solutions. This was part of a national initiative designed to encourage women to enter and progress in non-traditional roles in the construction industry.

The women surveyed a property, diagnosed defects and then created designs which incorporated a range of new technologies to reduce the building’s harmful emissions.

Everyone who took part rated the course and its materials as either good or excellent, with one attendee intending to use her newfound skills when buying her next house!

Please keep checking our website for any further course information.
