It was great to be welcomed back to the conference, with our very own David Crowe, Head of Architecture and Major Projects, and Rob Cargill from Troup Bywaters + Ander’s co-hosting a session on refurbishing existing buildings to create sustainable offices. David and Rob spoke on day two in the second instalment of the conference’s sustainability series.
At the centre of the discussion that day was climate change and what the construction and adjacent industries can be doing to positively affect change and keep striving for net zero targets. Paul Ingham from Morrison Construction spoke about how it’s important to think about sustainability in a holistic sense, with each business needing to be sustainable in their own actions to be able to put it out into the market. Alongside that was David Rodger, CEO of AREG (Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group), reminding us that transition to new technologies is not a new thing and that energy transition has a huge part to play in getting things right for the planet.
