How the industry is evolving to respond to the net zero mindset. Debating the importance of collaboration, materials and design for creating carbon balanced buildings.
This event has been rescheduled to Wednesday 5th October To celebrate the London Design Festival and inspire more people to embrace sustainable design. EnvirobuId are bringing together industry experts from all areas of the sustainable design process to share their expertise, experiences, obstacles they have overcome and recommendations for designing offices for a circular economy. With the construction industry being one of the largest users of global resources and contributor to pollution. It is vital for the industry to adopt sustainable practices to enable the UK to reach their net zero ambitions. The adoption of sustainable building design plays a key role in this. Sustainable building design requires the structure and processes to be environmentally responsible and resource-efficient. Embracing renewable energy and recycled materials as much as possible throughout the entire lifecycle of the building. Including design, construction, maintenance, renovation and demolition. Whilst also preserving the surrounding environment and improving the living conditions, health and wellbeing of the building's occupants. The discussion will take a holistic 360 approach to the process putting design at the centre of the discussion. Providing important insights, practical tips and advice. Highlighting the importance of collaboration between each area of the design and construction process. As well as the critical part materials and design play in creating carbon balanced buildings. The event will begin with short ted talks followed by a panel discussion on “ The Future of Sustainable Office Design “.
