Battle of the Building Systems – Live Demonstration Arena
Have you ever wondered how ICF’s are assembled or how a thin joint or timber frame systems are erected? All was demystified in our Battle of the Building Systems Live Demonstration Arena. Visitors watched in awe as exhibitors demonstrated the pros and cons of the various building systems, from traditional to modern methods, looking at everything from materials and labour costs; speed and versatility and environmental impact and energy performance.

Self Build Theatre
Visitors were treated to a series of talks that covered the major considerations you need to be aware of when undertaking a self build project. Our experts gave you the facts on everything from finding land and assessing its value; establishing a budget, and arranging self build finance and insurance; design and specification; hiring professionals and trades; and project management options.

Renovation Theatre
For a deeper insight into every aspect of your renovation project, the Renovation Theatre was the place to be. Whether you just wanted to top up your knowledge in one area or needed the lowdown on key issues to consider, visitors would sit back and learn from an array of industry experts.

Energy Efficiency Theatre
Soaring energy costs are taking a bigger chunk out of incomes than ever before, and for many households it’s not enough to simply switch suppliers, fit extra insulation or put in a new boiler. For those who wanted to seriously reduce their energy consumption, the Energy Efficiency Theatre provided a series of talks why building a truly energy efficient and sustainable home is the best solution.

Case Study Theatre
Hosted in the fabulous Ruskin House by Potton, visitors heared real life stories from other self builders, and learnt from their experiences – the good, the bad and the ugly! This theatre was a great place to meet other like-minded individuals, and pick up a wealth of useful information to help you with your own project.

Self Build Walking Tour
Our Self Build Walking Tours let the experts introduce you to our unique, permanent exhibits here at the NSBRC, which follows our Self Build Education Journey. Explore the whole process – from site set up; groundworks and foundation options; wall and roof structures, renewable technologies and finishes.

Renovation House Tours
Considering undertaking a renovation, or even if you’re already underway? Our guided group tour of the Centre’s unique Renovation House was a must. Our renovation experts journeyed around a dilapidated Victorian house brought back to 21st Century standards, using some of the latest technologies.
