BCO Webinar: Making the Future Office - Materials & Methods Towards a Circular Economy

Expand Navigation

The UK is the first major economy to target net zero emissions by 2050. The World and UK Green Building Councils have stated that all new buildings will need to be net zero by 2030 and all existing buildings by 2050. This means that, in the next tenure cycle, office buildings that are being designed and built now will be competing directly against brand new carbon zero offices for their next batch of tenants. This poses a great and welcome challenge to the construction industry.

The research, via a circular economy approach sets out ways we can begin to meet these challenges in our future workplaces: the choice of building materials, how they are combined and how they are put together in a way that creates space to achieve such imperative targets.
Following on from a successful launch in December 2019, join us to hear the highlights of this research, the result of a collaboration between AKT II, AHMM and Reading University.
