In 2012 The Building Centre partnered with UKGBC to help them deliver the London 2012 Sustainability Lessons Learned series of talks and workshops
As the ODA’s official ‘Learning Legacy Partner’ on sustainability for London 2012, UK Green Building Council has been on quite a journey over the past seven months, successfully delivering a series of learning events with over 100 speakers to over 1000 delegates. They’ve captured the content from these events – key resources, practical advice, videos and presentations – and compiled them into a free, electronic guide. Download it here
UK-GBC has already gotten feedback from UK companies, large and small, who are putting in place plans to embed this knowledge in current and future projects, initiating conversations about what it means for their own operations – which is exactly what the series, and the resulting guide, is intended to do.
The Olympics construction project is something that UK Plc should be very proud of. However, the biggest challenge – replicating the successes and truly embedding the lessons into all construction projects to deliver consistently low-carbon and sustainable growth in the UK – is still to come.
