THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR RESPONSIBLE SOURCING Apres (Action Programme on Responsible Sourcing)

PROFESSOR JACQUELINE GLASS School of Civil and Building Engineering, Loughborough University

Responsible sourcing is a mechanism through which construction materials and products are purchased from suppliers that have been audited against specific sustainability criteria, including environmental and social requirements. Leading companies such as Lafarge Tarmac now offer many certified responsibly sourced products. This presentation will help participants understand why responsible sourcing is important, its benefits and challenges, what materials are available through approved schemes, how to get responsible sourcing credits in BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes and where to go to get help and support.

CANEBUZO - ZERO CARBON COMMERCIAL BUILD

JERRY HARRALL Architect Search Architects

Canebuzo, The Carbon Neutral Business Zone, is a fossil fuel free business campus in Lincolnshire consisting of seven earth-sheltered offices, offering low to no energy bills for seven businesses. The design of this campus enables the buildings to achieve a naturally heated status and be naturally ventilated through a low tech, low invasive, intelligent approach. Jerry Harrall of Search Architects will be talking about how it was possible to achieve the 7 highest commercial EPCs in the country through this design. 11.15AM

THERMAL MASS EXPLAINED

TOM DE SAULLES Senior Manager - Building Sustainability MPA The Concrete Centre

This presentation provides an overview of thermal mass, what it is, how it is used, how it is measured and the benefits of utilising concrete’s thermal mass. Practical information is provided on utilising thermal mass in dwellings and buildings to enhance comfort and deliver energy efficiency. The latest revision to Building Regulations Part L1A and SAP ratings will also be featured. Attendees can register for copies of thermal mass guidance from The Concrete Centre. 12.30PM

UNITY GARDENS - ZERO CARBON DOMESTIC BUILD

JERRY HARRALL Architect Search Architects

Unity Gardens in Long Sutton, Lincolnshire, is the first near autonomous social housing scheme in the UK. The scheme comprises six single storey affordable homes that are surrounded on three sides with earth bunds to offer high levels of insulation and a 90% cement replacement concrete mix. The ethos of the project was to encourage a lower-carbon lifestyle with zero electricity bills. Achieving 6 of the highest EPCs for a domestic build, Jerry Harrall of Search Architects gives an insight into the project. 1.45PM
