Decarbonizing buildings isn’t just about construction work, but the way buildings are used and how efficient they are in use. This often comes back to the initial construction phase or the changes that have taken place in the life of a building for example during refurbishment or retrofit. This webinar looks at the diverse range of issues to be considered in order to steer our approach to the most sustainable one, whether we are considering the development of new construction or work to existing buildings. Quality and competence are both major issues that will be focused on.
