TUESDAY 3rd MARCH

11.30am Sustainability in asphalt pavements
  Speaker: Chris Marchesi, Aggregate Industries
  The CPD will explore the various different ways that asphalt materials can be specified and used sustainably.

 

   
12.00pm Energy efficient housing using fabric first approach
  Speaker: Richard Wilks DipArch RIBA, Aggregate Industries
  Energy efficient housing design using fabric first approach" - will cover the basic principles of achieving the highest levels of thermal performance and air-tightness under the latest Part L of the Building Regulations and up to passivhaus standard, including suggestions for construction using insulated raft, Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) wall, supporting precast upper floors and structural EPS roof panels.

 

   
12.30pm Masonry and BREEAM
  Speaker: Phil Lever, Aggregate Industries
  This presentation will cover the areas within BREEAM where masonry products can assist in achieving credits under BREEAM. Areas to be covered include Energy, with a insight into the present and future building regulations, Health & Wellbeing the benefits of sound reduction and thermal mass. Materials - greenguide ratings and the use of recycled / secondary aggregates under waste section 2.

 

   
1.00pm Collaborating for success – energy reduction, 3D printing and much more
  Speaker: Professor Jacqui Glass MCIOB, Loughborough University
  Professor Jacqui Glass MCIOB, Associate Dean for Enterprise in the School of Civil and Building Engineering at Loughborough University, will explain how powerful collaborative projects between industry and universities delivers innovation throughout the sustainability arena. She will highlight key areas of endeavour addressing a wide range of sustainability challenges for buildings and infrastructure, such as energy use, infrastructure monitoring, resource efficiency, and ethical sourcing.
   
1.30pm BIM and the supply chain
  Speaker: Henry Fenby-Taylor, B.A Hons Pg.dip MLI, Colour Urban Design
  The face of construction is changing. BIM is that change. BIM provides a means fordigital information to become a persistent and tangible part of an assets entire lifecycle. This reduces the amount of information that has to be re-entered at the expense of time and accuracy. As well as providing the means for important cost and sustainability analysis calculations to take place with heightened accuracy. The future BIM construction has persistent and consistent data about every aspect of the construction lifecycle which means construction can be more predictable in terms of time and money.

 

   
2.00pm Sustainable material options in hard landscape design
  Speaker: Peter Brown, Aggregate Industries
  The availability and choice of sustainable hard surfacing materials and their position within sustainable construction design.

 

   
2.30pm The effective use of thermal mass in passive building design
  Speaker: Eirini Mantesi, Aggregate Industries
  The thermal storage capacity of high thermal mass buildings is a well-known passive technique used to control the internal temperature swings in a building. It can also serve as a means of the building’s adaptation to climate change and prevent it from overheating. The presentation will cover the main design considerations associated with the effective deployment of thermal mass in respect to buildings’ energy efficiency.

 

   
3.00pm Contemporary change in UK housebuilding: Understanding clients' strategic needs.
  Speaker: Ron Lang, Aggregate Industries
  Doctoral researcher, Ron Lang discusses the idiosyncrasies of and upcoming challenges faced by the UK's housebuilding industry. The need for the supply chain to understand housebuilders' strategic needs when developing new build solutions is demonstrated using a recent case study, and the suitability of alternative construction methods to volume housing production are discussed.

1.00pm Long Barrow passivhaus - getting planning against the odds
  Speaker: Alex Baines, Head of Sustainability and Building Phsyics for CBG Consultants and a Certified Passivhaus Consultant
  An overview from the client as to how and why this innovative new build project gained planning in an area of a strict no build policy. This will cover the process undertaken as well as all the sustainable aspects of this project that led to it being approved unanimously by the district council in a public vote. Highlighting items like community involvement, sustainability in planning, biodiversity development, human comfort, flexibility of structural and services design, natural stone cladding and water management amongst others.
   
1.30pm Masonry and BREEAM
  Speaker: Phil Lever, Aggregate Industries
  This presentation will cover the areas within BREEAM where masonry products can assist in achieving credits under BREEAM. Areas to be covered include Energy, with a insight into the present and future building regulations, Health & Wellbeing the benefits of sound reduction and thermal mass. Materials - greenguide ratings and the use of recycled / secondary aggregates under waste section 2.
   
2.00pm The skeletank solution for residential SuDS
  Speaker: Graeme Richards, Charcon Construction Solutions
  Skeletank® systems provide solutions for the management of surface water runoff from residential developments. Systems can be designed on a plot-by-plot basis to provide infiltration, attenuation or rainwater recycling options in combination with both pervious and impervious surfacing or in soft landscaped areas. The shallow modular nature of the system is especially cost-effective where there are ground issues such as contamination, high water tables or underlying rock layers. The design of the system minimises volume requirements for adoptable attenuation systems and reduces up-fronts drainage costs.

 

   
2.30pm BIM and the supply chain

Speaker: Henry Fenby-Taylor, B.A.hons Pg.dip MLI, Colour Urban Design
  The face of construction is changing. BIM is that change. BIM provides a means for digital information to become a persistent and tangible part of an assets entire lifecycle. This reduces the amount of information that has to be re-entered at the expense of time and accuracy. As well as providing the means for important cost and sustainability analysis calculations to take place with heightened accuracy. The future BIM construction has persistent and consistent data about every aspect of the construction lifecycle which means construction can be more predictable in terms of time and money.

1.00pm The commercial value of EPD
  Speaker: Dr Shamir Ghumra, Principal Consultant at Responsible Solutions and a member of the UK mirror committee to CEN TC 350
  Nowadays we are blessed with data; in fact we are practically swimming in a sea of information. Environmental data relating to constructions products is perhaps part of a lesser known spectrum of data emerging in the supply chain. Some organisations are embracing the change toward greater product transparency however it does always resonate with those more commercially minded. Dr Ghumra will outline the approach towards bridging the communications gap in order for organisations to realise the true holistic power of EPD.
