The idea is pretty simple.
We would like to lower carbon emissions yet courses like BREAM cost thousands of pounds, and for students like me, studying my Masters in Architecture, shouldn't this be the perfect opportunity to have a course like BREAM compulsory and free?
Why should we have to pay to learn skills that will dramatically benefit the construction industry? Why should the wealthy be able to access the skills, yet we complain buildings are not meeting standards?
Its simple. Free education for students, Architects, builders, Quantity Surveyors, Project Managers, everyone in the construction industry should understand the basic principles to achieving the standards needed.
Cliche I know but it's true. Education is power. The power to reduce carbon emissions within design, construction and all stakeholders involved in the construction process.
