|Tom Butcher leads the Met Office Consultancy team and is responsible for the delivery of a range of projects that help the industry make the best use of today’s weather information and be more resilient to future climate change.|
|In this presentation he discusses the biggest climate change impacts on the built environment and how applying climate information across the building lifecycle can help improve resilience.|
|Tom was joined during our question and answer session by Dr Joe Osborne, who is a senior climate consultant at the Met Office and has been working with a range of organisations to help them build climate resilience into their long-term strategies. In particular, he is using the latest UK Climate Projections (UKCP18) to help prepare and adapt for the future.|
