One of your clients wants solar thermal and asks whether it works with a combi boiler, whilst a client in a small office needs to upgrade their gas boiler and wants to know whether they should install a heat pump instead of a condensing boiler.

This CPD is designed to answer such queries and to enable architects to work more effectively with plumbers and M&E engineers on smaller projects.

Cath will present an overview of the main types of plumbing and heating systems in domestic and small commercial situations, and will explain how to successfully integrate the core sustainable solutions into conventional plumbing systems using relevant case studies and interactive group work
