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.

Carbon

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
