Our very own Rachel Witherick was the only girl enrolled on the latest course directed by Rob McLeod (pictured above) at the Building Research Establishment in October 2010. This is a technically challenging course and thoroughly recommended – you’ll never look at a cold bridge in the same way again. Some leading lights of the RIBA Sustainable Futures Committee also found time to do the course, whilst simultaneously directing their architectural practices. It’s quite an achievement to find time to do the massive amount of study and revision necessary whilst running busy professional and personal lives. Rachel has chosen to double up the course and Passivhaus exam revision with her final professional RIBA exams!
