Cornwall and Devon Group

Who are we and what do we do? The group covers a wide geographic area and so events and visits may not always be easily accessible to all members but feel free to attend when you can!  At the moment there’s a Cornwall focus with CPD’s and the group meets usually in Bodmin or Truro.  There is currently no regular meeting date, instead we organise occasional talks and site visits to interesting projects combining this with pub grub whenever possible.  We’re always open to suggestions from the group.  We have a healthy mix of builders, self-builders, architects, designers, energy consultants and other construction consultants.

Meet the group leaders:
