Good Homes Alliance is pleased to partner with Unlock Net Zero Live and Homes UK, which returns to the ExCel in London from 22nd-23rd November 2023.
GHA workshop – Shading for housing: Designing for a changing climate
14:00-15:00, Thursday 23rd November, The Collab Hub, Unlock Net Zero Live
By the middle of the 2030s, 90% of the UK housing stock will suffer from overheating. Today however, shading devices – or products – for all kinds of buildings, but housing especially, are rarely made integral at design stage. In short, sunlight control is too often a tacked-on afterthought.
Join Good Homes Alliance, Pollard Thomas Edwards and Max Fordham for an interactive workshop and networking session in the Collab Hub. Discuss the barriers, hear about the solutions, and ask questions to our experts, to help you to specify the most appropriate shading solution to mitigate overheating risk in buildings.

Focusing on the practical reality of the transition to a net zero future, the leading net zero knowledge portal – which now has over 70,000 subscribers – will be brought to life through our dedicated exhibition and interactive learning and networking opportunities.
Unlock Net Zero Live brings the UK housing and built environment sectors together to push forward bold conversations and practical solutions to decarbonise our homes and places at both pace and scale.
To make a positive impact in our communities alongside meeting the UK’s net zero and climate change targets, we need collective, urgent action across all sectors. Join us to help build the foundations of net zero together.
HOMES UK – An unmissable event for housing and asset management, development and sustainability professionals
