“Sustainability” is arguably one of the world's most talked about but least understood words. It has become more pivotal over the years in everyday life and of course, the construction industry. This means training opportunities and keeping up to date with the industry are pertinent. In the world of construction, new builds have the opportunity to make a major contribution to a more sustainable future for our planet. The need to improve sustainable performance of the buildings we operate in due to urban populations increasing is paramount.

In addition to building regulation and government targets for low carbon construction, granting planning permission for sustainable development remains key. The London Build Sustainability Summit offers over 10,000+ visitors the opportunity to come and learn of updated regulations and latest industry news from event professionals from global brands.

 

 

The show brings together industry leaders to improve the built environment through training and knowledge generation. The zone will act as a knowledge hub, devoted to sustainability, innovation and best practice in the built environment.

150+ free to attend CPD conference and training workshops cover: The Core Issues Driving Sustainability in London, Creating Wealth Through Healthier Workplaces, Future Proofing Cities, Building a More Sustainable Future for Construction, Sustainable Design and Construction - Commercial and Residential, Breathing Life into Cities, Achieving Sustainable Construction Through BIM, Sustainable Procurement & Measurement. View the full agenda here.

If you'd like to mingle with the Sustainability experts in the UK – they will be present at day two of London Build - 26th October from 3pm – 5pm. Thousands of contacts will congregate for jam-packed debate, networking, product demonstrations and launches which will take place alongside the cocktail afternoon.
