This event will provide designers access to the latest guidance to enable them to design long-lasting, high-performance homes using concrete and masonry solutions.
With the drivers for "more", there is a risk that performance is compromised. The aim of this event is to provide guidance to produce high performance homes that will weather economic, social and environmental challenges.
This full day of presentations is split into three sessions:
Session 1 will provide an understanding of the policy and market influences on the UK housing sector, for example discussing how developers are responding to the Government's drive to build more homes.
Session 2 brings together designers to present case studies for high performance housing, with examples of masonry construction, in-situ concrete and precast concrete solutions. Innovative techniques and design approaches will be discussed for delivering new-build private and affordable homes. Case studies include Highpoint in London with Rob Partridge, director at AKTII; Creek Road in Greenwich with Justin Kelly, partner at bptw partnership London; and Building Better Buildings: exploring Derwenthorpe in York with Richard Partington, founder and director at Studio Partington.
Session 3 provides a focus on performance on flooding, acoustics, energy efficiency and avoiding overheating with expert speakers from Environment Agency, Robust Details and The Concrete Centre
Delegates will gain:
- An overview of the policy and regulatory context for the provision of new homes.
- Practical guidance for the design of resilient concrete and masonry solutions.
- The latest updates on performance considerations including fire, energy efficiency, overheating, flooding and acoustics.
- Insights from case studies of urban, social, low-rise and high-rise buildings.
As part of the conference, there will be an exhibition providing product and project guidance.
Event starts at 9.30am and ends at 4.00pm.
