COP26 further stressed what we already knew. If we are to meet our net zero commitments and limit global warming, we must start delivering net zero buildings NOW.
Uplifts in building regulations are close, but are they going fast and far enough? And will they deliver net zero homes that are comfortable for occupants, resilient and perform as their design intended? Quality assured build methods and performance evaluation and verification surely have a vital role to play in minimising the ‘performance gap’.
There are a growing number of exemplar case studies from progressive clients, developers and designers who are leading the way. Can the current paradigms become the norm?
Join expert speakers for a GHA-curated session at the popular exhibition and conference Futurebuiild, which takes place from 1st-3rd March at London’s ExCel.
