The Endeavour Centre's 5-month, full-time Sustainable New Construction certificate program involves you in every aspect of making a highly sustainable building. From simple natural building materials like straw and clay to state-of-the-art energy systems, our students experience the learning that comes from being responsible for all aspects of construction, from planning and budgeting to fine finishes and systems commissioning.

Interacting with experienced builders and tradespeople, students work with designs, materials and technologies that are at the forefront of sustainable building, including:

* straw bale * earthen plasters * earthbag * hempcrete * straw/clay * timber frame * solar hot water * rain water collection and treatment * alternative wastewater treatment * geothermal heating * photovoltaics * earthen floors * advanced lighting * cob * local wood & woodworking * and much more!

The learning experience suits the seasoned building professional and the excited newcomer alike. The diversity of students in our classes creates a unique atmosphere of cooperation, shared learning and partnership.

This experience can put you on the path to a future in sustainable building, from first-time owner-builder to general contractor.
