Disruptive Innovation Festival – Circular Economy in the Built Environment: Innovation and Implementation 19 November 2018

What about a Zero built house, super isolated with healthy materials that you actually can take with you when you move, without creating waste? Or learn how we need to adapt our Buildings for future events as extreme weather and in that way save a lot of materials.

This interesting session gives a good explenation of  what is needed to get a change in the building sector and to make it circular. A tour is given of practical examples  of eight buildings located in and around BRE’s Innovation Park in Watford UK. A panel session with a diverse range of experts and practitioners discuss barriers and opportunities to transition from a linear to a circular built environment, including the £1million question on where R&D should focus next.

Taking part from BAMB is Gilli Hobbs, Director at Strategic Advisory team at BRE.
