Details

We’ll examine the impacts of not doing particular things in time and work arounds you might implement to get time back.

UK planning and approval processes as well as the Building regulations and control inspections will be explained and we’ll help you understand how to set up and manage your budget and claim back VAT.

Also included will be how to estimate costs and get quotes for some key items, how to pick and work with suppliers.

You’ll work through the Health and Safety requirements depending on who’s doing the work and what it means to be a principal contractor.

You’ll leave with a check list to prepare your site and manage your site waste.

The whole course will be wrapped within the ethos of sustainable and ethical building principles and we’ll make sure you know where to get help if you need it.

Over the weekend you will create a draft project plan, budget and H&S plan you can develop further for your own project. You’ll also visit a current sustainable build project and learn about common pit falls in the planning and budgeting process.

CAT is located three miles north of Machynlleth on the A487, look out for the brown signs.

Bus services run from Machynlleth and other major towns. The T2 runs regular routes from Aberystwyth to Bangor. The T2 also passes the centre as well. It's worth looking online if you're planning to travel by bus and ask the driver about the best place to alight for the centre.

National Cycle Network Route 8 passes via CAT's entrance and the road from Mach to CAT is quiet and safe (see map above).
