    ” As a Chartered Structural Engineer with over 40 years in the engineering and construction industry, the NHTG L3 Understanding Repair & Maintenance course was a fascinating couple of days. Reflecting on the session, I came to the conclusion that there is still a lot for me to understand about traditional buildings. At least by doing the two days, I’ve started a new learning cycle!” (Dewsbury Course June 2015)
