Overcoming Shortages while meeting new requirements
We were joined by industry experts to discuss the current materials and labour shortages challenging construction and how to overcome this challenge while meeting the required standards.
During this event we explored:
- What the present challenges are and how the industry may overcome them.
- How recent and future standards/regulation is driving higher standards.
- Why it is important to reduce dependence on competency.
- Impact of changing market needs and social trends on residential buildings.
- Steps to unblocking constraints to enable efficient project pathways.
Construction’s Carbon Dilemma: Why, When & How?
Sustainability and climate change continue to be key topics within the construction industry globally. The UK Government has set out to achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse emissions by 2050. It is estimated that 25% of carbon emissions come from homes and a further 17% from non-domestic buildings, so a decision was been made to improve energy efficiency in every household.
We seek to uncover the answers to these questions in our virtual event focused on why carbon consideration is so important, when you can make a difference and how you can take practical steps toward carbon reduction.
How fire safety might change construction in the next few years?
Fire Safety is an essential yet complex area all builders must address. As high-rise development increases so does the chances of fire hazards. In recent times, London has seen some of the worst high-rise building fires. This ultimately led to the widely known Hackitt Report.
At this event we looked to uncover the what and the why of the grey areas of fire regulation changes. We will also help our audience understand the importance of having a fully traceable information train or “Golden Thread”.
Thermal Bridging is not a Bridge too Far
The era of net-zero homes is upon us. The race to design and build the super-efficient homes of tomorrow that is happening today. Canadians use significant amounts of energy to heat, cool, and ventilate their homes. Managing what happens inside the building envelope is only one part of the battle. How do we as an industry, conquer the thermal bridging question?
Due to ever-changing code requirements and building practices, Canadian housing stock has undergone significant change over the years in terms of its thermal performance. As compared to previous decades, new houses are built with higher insulation levels, better airtightness, and more efficient space heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. But with all those internal concerns address, what about outside the building envelope?
Bridging the Gap between Design & Build
There is a gulf between the design and construction companies on a building project and the operations managers who take over the end-product. This can occur when information isn’t properly defined at the outset because designers, contractors and manufacturers don’t have a specific brief as to what’s required of them.
Collaboration with the built environment throughout the supply chain could bring together the often disjointed and diverse disciplines to focus on a projects lifecycle and address key challenges. The project process from concept to delivery to handover could be much smoother and simpler if the industry was more open to collaboration.
At this event we addressed some of the key issues that occur because of this void and understand how the industry can overcome this gap in information by speaking with some of the leading voices in the built environment
Unlocking Construction's Efficiency
The pandemic has undoubtedly been a challenge for the industry but it is a catalyst for change. The impact technology, modern construction methods and the digital transformation have had on this industry during the past year, will be acknowledged for years to come.
Building into 2021 & Learning from 2020
2020 has been a tumultuous year and the impact of COVID has been seen in most industries, construction included. At this virtual event heard from a number of industry professionals on their learnings from 2020 and how they aim to make 2021 a success
Reducing Fire Risk & the Golden Thread
We explored the role the “Golden Thread” of information has on reducing fire risk through effective traceability and a consistent thread of up-to-date information to bridge the gap between design and construction.
The Future of Construction Post Pandemic
The Future of Construction Post Pandemic aimed to understand a range of industry perspectives on the future of construction post COVID-19. We looked to explore the consequences the pandemic has had or will have, such as resident demands for more private outdoor space as a result of the move to working
Get Residential Right in Dublin
Get Residential Right in Dublin focused on the future of residential construction in Dublin and the key needs within the Dublin market.
MMC: The thrust behind construction
This event in our series was focused on Modern Methods of Construction and how it is a thrust behind modernisation and efficiency within the industry.
A Debate on Laminate Glass
This event in our series was a formal debate around laminate glass and its role in high-rise residential living. We had an in-depth discussion with a number of industry leaders.
This event focused on External Envelope. It was attended by a range of construction industry experts.
Construction: Working from home, learning and staying productive
The Staying Productive event sought to educate construction professionals by exploring common challenges faced by the industry during this current crisis. We will tackle a number of topics from well being, continued learning and staying productive.
This event hosted in New Zealand explored how balconies can unlock the potential for Speed and Scale in the multi occupancy New Zealand Market.
MANCHESTER | BEETHAM TOWER
This event focused on MMC and on Fire in multi-occupancy developments. It was attended by a range of construction industry experts to Government bodies and Fire Brigade Chief's
LONDON | THE GHERKIN
This was the second event at the Gherkin in a 9 month period and was completely booked out from the morning roundtable and through the presentations during the day.
