A seminar and workshop to explore the relationship between industry, heritage and sustainability in some depth. 

 

Our three co-chairs will summarise

  • the development of sustainability thinking, 
  • the response of heritage to the sustainability agenda
  • the current approach of industry to improving traditional buildings

Delegates will then split into smaller groups to tackle a series of key questions before reconvening as a larger group to discuss the results and identify areas of common ground. 



The second half of the seminar will begin with examples where a successful balance has been achieved, presented by our two key patrons - the National Trust and Historic England.

Delegates will then again break into smaller groups to identify remaining areas of conflict, before coming together in a plenary session to discuss the implications of these remaining conflicts and to identify possible ways of resolving them.

STBA Members' Advisory Group Meeting in London


Moisture and Breathability – ASBP and The Green Register event, 9th November, Bristol 

Discount for STBA members!


Buildings should be considered not as standalone discrete entities, but as part of a system in constant and dynamic interaction with people and the environment. This interconnectedness means benefits, problems, solutions and consequences cannot be effectively addressed in isolation.


With energy efficiency as the main driver for retrofit, the case for delivering effective moisture control becomes ever more paramount. This must be alongside good detailing, quality installation, consideration of product impacts and an effective ventilation strategy.


Presentations include the SPAB Building performance survey, Bristol City Council's Responsible Retrofit programme, ventilation, natural fibre insulation.


Cost: ASBP, The Green Register, STBA and SPAB members – £65; 

Non-Members – £99


Special offer – book 3 places for the price of 2.

 

Book now via The Green Register.

ASBP's Natural Fibre Insulation CPD 

23rd November, London 
Discount for STBA members!

We learned from exhibitiors and speakers at the 2017 STBA-SPAB Conference that natural fibre insulation has many advantages for use in solid-wall buildings. The ASBP are now offering a series of CPDs explaining the benefits with technical information and case studies.

“Thanks for a very informative seminar.  It presented a clear and persuasive argument for the use of natural insulation, without any hard sell.  The presenters were all extremely approachable and able to answer questions in simple terms.  Every specifier should attend!” Marianne Suhr

These events will be run from 17.00 to 19.00 at The Foundry, Baldwin Terrace, London N1 7RU. Places are limited, booking essential.

Discounts (Partners rate) for STBA members.
