A series of individual freely available CPD learning packages have been produced, available here via our Online Academy, which support and informs curricula on ‘future skills’ for sustainability within the construction, surveying and property industries, which include:

‘Horizons: achieving excellence’. This sustainability case study provides an account of our relocation to new premises in 2016, and showcases how an inefficient 1980s building in central Reading which was converted into our sustainable new home (BREEAM ‘Excellent’).  This case study explores both the rationale and opportunities that exist for embedding sustainability into the built environment, and analyses the impact our ‘green’ office has had thus far in environmental, social and economic contexts.

‘Poundbury – New approaches to urbanism’: This course, in partnership with the Prince’s Foundation, explains why the need to develop sustainable communities has never been greater.  Land use, ecological factors, mass migration and many other sources of stress are affecting community life. These factors, combined with the need for job creation, mean that we have to find new ways to develop our urban environment.
