How to specify low-impact & healthy materials in your project Workshop

Held in central London

Postponed

Venue: Pollard Thomas Edwards | 38 Graham Street | London N1 8JX | United Kingdom

Welcome to this exciting live sustainability workshop held in the heart of London!

This is a unique and targeted technical working session aiming to create a meeting of minds between designers who specify building materials and building manufacturers.

How can we include sustainable materials and products into building design? How can we improve building product performances in order to step further into the sustainable products market?

Your expert facilitators will run through the following topics:

  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology for building materials and products
  • Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) of building materials and products
  • Assessment and comparison systems for building materials and products
  • Tools and methodologies to facilitate inclusion of sustainable materials in building projects.
  • Online tools, software, and other resources available.

The working session will aim to create interactions between designers and product manufacturers, in order to find common goals and ways to integrate design and products successfully.

Many thanks to PTE Architects for hosting this session.
