Sustainable Construction CPD

This programme in Sustainable Construction was developed initially as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for design professionals to assist practitioners in the understanding of sustainable design, and to provide the technical skills by which to implement the most up-to-date concepts. It has led to development of an accreditation scheme in sustainable building design.

It is proving invaluable to all those involved in the design, operation and management of the UK building stock, including clients seeking to understand the opportunities afforded by sustainable buildings and how to set appropriate benchmarks, project managers looking to understand the pitfalls in delivery and cost professionals looking to assist in delivering affordable solutions.

Sustainable Construction Modules

This 15 module programme covers all aspects of Sustainable Construction. Each module provides information on critical aspects of a particular topic and sources of further guidance in an annotated bibliography. Case studies highlight best practice solutions to improve understanding and encourage implementation.

What delegates think

We think that you will both greatly enjoy and benefit from the CPD programme - but you don't need to take our word for it. Click here to see what seminar delegates have had to say.


We established a high level of interest from the professions in a system of accreditation for sustainable design. A pilot scheme was launched by the RIAS in October 03 and the first awards made in 2004. If you are interested in finding out more, click here.
