Offsite For Education – Learning From The Enemy?
Time: 10:35 - 10:50
Date: Wednesday 16 October
For many years, sustainability in construction has been focused on incrementally doing less damage to the environment.
Our own approach is to actively improve the environment through our interventions, and in doing so, improve the health, comfort and wellbeing of our users.
To this, we have had to implement new ways of doing things; rethinking traditional business models, designing for disassembly, using new, healthy materials and new methods of construction and procurement.
Ironically, a lot of these ‘new ways’ of doing things have actually been done before, in an industry with a questionable record on sustainability – the car industry.
