The Role of Technology in Sustainability



With organisations moving to reduce their environmental impacts in the wake of rapidly rising costs and increasing climate related events, technology holds the key. From initial design through to construction, technology can help the sector reduce its heavy contribution to carbon emissions.

This webinar is chaired by Professor Chris Gorse, Chair of the CIOB Sustainability Advisory Panel, and includes input from James Chambers, Director Global Industry Development – Build and Construct Division at Nemetschek, and David Ede, Senior Change Manager at BRE. It also includes a case study from Caron Johnson, winner of the very first CIOB Sustainability Award and her work at MOJ about its pilot with BREEAM Tech to see how they use data to drive more sustainable choices on projects.

To help companies on their journey, Bluebeam has developed an eBook with the CIOB to explain how technology can drive more sustainable outcomes. Divided into three sections: planning and design, construction and occupation and ongoing management, it explains how organisations can improve building performance and reduce carbon emissions in construction and operation.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
