Sustainability takes centre stage at Steel Construction Conference
British Land head of construction Richard Elliott will deliver the keynote address on ‘The Client’s View of Sustainable Steel Construction’ to the Steel Construction Conference and Exhibition on 15 November.
The Steel Construction Sustainability Charter will be launched at the event, unveiling the industry’s definition of sustainability. Companies will be able to subscribe to the charter to denote their commitment to sustainability targets. Their performance will then be subject to an annual audit.
Other presentations will include project case studies in the bridges, hospital, school and multi-storey residential sectors, and the Eurocodes. There will be 30 exhibitor stands.
John Humphrys, of Radio 4’s Today programme, has already been signed up to chair a panel discussion of future trends in the UK construction market.
The conference fee of £160+VAT includes a copy of a new book on Steel Construction Details.
