The barriers and enablers to a long-term Sustainable Estate

16 May 2024
Alumni Theatre

The technology to transition to net zero education estates has been well established many years, however the estate is still not there.

This session will explore the barrier and enablers to having a long-term sustainable estate, including;

  • the role of soft landings, stakeholder engagement and why commissioning is not just a nice to have;
  • the need for training and how are education organisations upskilling staff to take ownership of the NZ assets;
  • how education estates teams can use data to maximise efficiency and understand asset requirements;
  • What tools and guidance are out there for operational teams to push forward decarbonisation;
  • What funding and programme is needed to support decarbonisation.  

The panel will share experiences from new and refurbished assets from across the Schools and Further Education Colleges.
