Sustainable Homes: Now is the time to Act | What you can do

17 June 2022

17:00 -20:00

On 1 May 2019 the UK Government declared a Climate Emergency. With a 5th of all UK emissions coming from homes there are actions everyone can take to live a more sustainable life and reduce Climate Change. Working in partnership, EDGE and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists are to present an evening of information and presentations to provide understanding and clarity on how you can act now to design or retrofit your property to be more sustainable and reduce its impact on the Climate.

Members of the public are encouraged to come and join us over drink and nibbles to hear:
• Information about EDGE and how the visiting the showroom can be a valuable source of information about materials and products that can be used to create more sustainable building projects and living spaces.
• A presentation from Giles Boon MCIAT, Chartered Architectural Technologist and a Passivhaus expert to learn how a Passivhaus home can provide superior performance, reduced costs and foster an environment better for health and wellbeing.
• A presentation from Tim Martel MCIAT, Chartered Architectural Technologist and a retrofit expert, to learn how you could adapt your current property to be more sustainable and understand how superior technical design can make your home more efficient

There will also be opportunity to visit the ‘Ask the Expert’ stand where you can speak to a Chartered Architectural Technologist about your building projects and receive advice. Slots are for 5 minutes and must be booked on arrival.

Attendees must pre-register to attend via Eventbrite.
