About the event:

‘In the context of the climate emergency we explore how collaboration between the multidisciplinary design team, material innovation and logical design can reduce the carbon footprint of our building whilst maintaining and enhancing the delight they bring. Join us as we share our approach to sustainability through project examples where, through close collaboration with the client and design team, we have delivered buildings to minimise their life cycle carbon footprint and discuss how this can be continued in the future’.
