Building a Sustainable Future – what are the opportunities for the industry to use low impact and renewable materials and construction methods?
Tom Woolley is an expert on sustainable and natural architecture and has been a leading exponent of green building and architecture for 20 years. He is an ambassador for LIVING BUILDING CHALLENGE, which aims to set standards beyond BREEAM and LEED.
A practising architect and lecturer, Tom will provide a fascinating insight into the latest research on renewable construction materials and building methods including hemp, hempline and strawbale.
