An open letter - signed by leaders of 55 construction and property companies - to the Chancellor of the Exchequer was recently published in the Daily Telegraph. The letter encouraged the government to include "bold energy efficiency targets in their long term economic plan" and asked for all homes to be zero carbon from 2016. There are many factors as to why there is a growing demand for sustainable and energy efficient buildings, these include cost savings on energy and the reduction on global warming. It is clear that in order to reduce carbon emissions and ultimately save money for the end user, the industry must utilise new and innovative approaches for design and construction.
To be held on 18 November at the Inmarsat Conference Centre, London the Fabric First Event is an unmissable one day conference and exhibition designed to present the benefits of adopting ‘fabric first' methodologies for modern energy efficient buildings. The event brings together distinguished and pioneering speakers from a broad spectrum of the industry to draw upon their considerable experience to deliver a comprehensive programme of policy and regulation presentations, plus technology and project case studies.
This event is aimed at developers, landlords and building operators, plus their key advisors - architects, specifiers, energy consultants and engineers, and their delivery partners throughout the supply-chain - main contractors, specialist sub-contractors, project managers and building technology providers.
While the price of energy is continuing to rise and the pressure on budgets has become more acute post-recession - a buildings operational performance is becoming increasingly crucial to developers, specifiers and the end consumer. The Fabric First Event will highlight the value of high performance buildings envelopes - acknowledging the rise of energy efficiency to the top of the building agenda.
Tickets to the event cost just £95 +VAT and include access to the conference and exhibition, plus lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
