Conference

The future of building envelopes: Exploring innovation and sustainability through case studies
Took place: 30 November 2023
Catch-up on-demand below

Join us for this Buildings, Design and Specification event to explore innovative building envelope systems that are reshaping the way we think about architecture and specification.

Originally hosted at the Tate Modern on 30 November, this knowledge-sharing and networking event will explore the use of innovative products in practice.

Delivering peer learning with a series of enlightening case studies from visionary architects and designers, the event will cover a broad range of building typologies and performance criteria.

These case studies delve deep into the transformative technologies, materials, and concepts driving the evolution of building envelopes, revealing how specification choices can enable greater safety and improved sustainability.

Speakers include:

Tim-Gledstone

Tim Gledstone, partner, Squire & Partners

 

In this session, you will discover how architects are pushing the boundaries of skyscraper design by reimagining the possibilities of building envelopes.

Explore this through an in-depth examination of Triptych Bankside that showcases pioneering facades, dynamic lighting systems, fire resistance and waterproofing systems and innovative materials that redefine modern cityscapes.

Green roofs are becoming increasingly popular across the UK. In this session, discover how designers are exploring the spectrum of roofing and facade technologies required to deliver exceptional green roofs, thorugh the Macallan Distillery case study.

We will investigate how design and specification decisions are made with regard to waterproofing systems, drainage options, through to the potential sustainability benefits such as thermal enhancements for the building.

Housing & Offsite Programme
A year round programme of webinars and conferences

Over the past few weeks Building, Building Design and Housing Today have been monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 to ensure we are taking the necessary steps to protect both our speakers and attendees of our upcoming conferences. Therefore we have made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming Housing & Offsite conference. If you had previously bought a ticket for this conference, this will be transferred to the new date which will be confirmed soon. If you would like to speak to us about this, please contact one of the team.

However, we are pleased to introduce new programme-led webinars for 2020: two afternoons of informative presentations from an expert panel followed by a 30 minute Q&A. They will bring together the leading digital players from across the Built Environment.

The first webinar with our Housing Programme will take place
on Wednesday 29 July at 3pm

Will covid-19 recovery be a springboard for low carbon housing?

The pandemic has hit the housing sector hard, but is there an opportunity for energy efficient homes to be a crucial part of the economic recovery?
