Queen Anne an Architectural voyage of discovery Net Zero 2030
Rob Hartley Head of Estate Strategy & Carbon Reduction, University of Greenwich

Where do you start in the journey to Net Zero when dealing with ancient monuments?

Focusing on the initial study of Queen Anne part of the Royal Naval College complex designed by Christopher Wren and completed 1735.  The presentation explores the role of the client and the importance of research in unlocking the buildings hidden potential to achieve the aspiration of Zero Carbon in its future refurbishment and use.  The voyage of Architectural discovery unlocks the genius of the Wren’s design and explores the opportunities in achieving net Zero Carbon 2030 by working with not against the history of the building.

Navigating the net-zero pathway
Steven Rankin, Associate Director, Architype

Using examples of Architype’s recent higher education work, Steve will set out an approach for navigating the route to zero carbon. The approach will target the following key areas:

  • Establishing the pathway – using the example of a completed campus development plan, what are the key strategies and methods for locking in success on the zero-carbon pathway and what should the outcome look to achieve?
  • From the plan to the projects – What should your estate look like and how should buildings perform?
  • Completing the net-zero pathway – How do you complete the journey and what will it look like when you do?
