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.

Sustainable building is a challenge for the construction industry if UK carbon reduction targets are to be met. Natural Building involves construction with materials that have undergone less processing and manufacturing that conventional synthetic products.
