About the Conference
Thanks to activists such as Greta Thunberg, the Climate Emergency - the need to protect our one and only planet from an unsustainable temperature rise - has moved up the agenda for most of us and has generated many pledges to become carbon neutral sometime this side of 2050.
The construction industry is in a key position to provide solutions to meet the Climate Emergency targets, as we already know the measures we need to take to reduce the environmental impact of our buildings; we just need to act swiftly and effectively now.
This is even more important for existing buildings, most of which would not meet even the modest building standards the UK has in place today.
This conference brings together all the key players of the construction industry to give their perspective on both the challenges and solutions to making rapid progress when upgrading our existing building stock.
The conference concludes with several jointly presented case studies (the client, the builder and the architect) illustrating both what can be achieved with a collaborative team approach and what compromises had to be made.
Attendance is a must for those who are interested in what the future holds for retrofit.
