BCO Research Launch: Making the Future Workplace - Materials & Methods towards a Circular Economy

Expand Navigation


The UK is the first major economy to target net zero emissions by 2050. The World and UK Green Building Councils have stated that all new buildings will need to be net zero by 2030 and all existing buildings by 2050. This means that, in the next tenure cycle, office buildings that are being designed and built now will be competing directly against brand new carbon zero offices for their next batch of tenants. This poses a great and welcome challenge to the construction industry.

This collaboration between AKT II, AHMM and Reading University is being launched at the White Collar Factory. The authors along with a panel from Derwent London, Mace, and Hawkins Brown will present the highlights of this research and continue into a panel discussion for a lively debate.

The research, via a circular economy approach sets out ways we can begin to meet these challenges in our future workplaces: the choice of building materials, how they are combined and how they are put together in a way that creates space to achieve such imperative targets.

Join us for a morning of discussion and debate at the White Collar Factory.
