  • You will gain an understanding of the latest developments in legislation, design, technologies, fabric, costs and ‘payback’, carbon measurement and life cycle considerations in the building, construction and retrofit sector.
  • Direct contact with supply chain ‘solution’ companies and access to immediate and longer-term funding opportunities will also result from the workshop content.

THIS SESSION IS

  • An opportunity for any builder, architect or developer to get up to date with practical information and contacts on low carbon building design, materials and technologies Ideal for your business if you are unsure of the legislation, the opportunities for low carbon build/retrofit or have technical, training or supply chain challenges that you need to address
