As the demand rises for environmentally friendly construction techniques and sustainable practices, individuals with new skills will be required to build the houses of the future. For learners interested in home design, architecture, and the future of the house building industry, centres can create a bespoke course consisting of existing core units from our BTEC Nationals in Construction and the Built Environment (2017), alongside specialist units designed in association with MOBIE.

New units

Learners develop skills in responding to a client brief with a housing design proposal and solution.
