Sustainability Training

At CGC we have streamlined our Continued Professional Development process into two annual sessions.

Taking place in June with a follow up session in November, our CPD sessions are designed to inform attendees about the latest developments in the often turbulent area of sustainability.  We like to factor in our attendees interests and ensure our sessions are tailored to meet any particular needs.

Our 2019 title is “Changes to the Building Regulations and Sustainability Agenda – what does this mean for you?”

We will look at building regulations, current policy and the future of the building industry.

We do not charge you for a CPD and welcome your input, both before and after the event.
