ASBP at Futurebuild
ASBP will be exhibiting on stand L70 in the Materials zone. We are delighted that Futurebuild is an official media partner for the ASBP Awards 2023 and we will also be showcasing the finalists from our Project, Product and Initiative categories at a special Awards display.
Alongside exhibiting, ASBP will host 2 seminars at Futurebuild:
Tuesday 7th March, 16:30-17:15, Materials Stage – Innovate reuse of structural steel
Steel is one of the most widely used and resource intensive materials used in construction. Although commonly recycled at end of life, the reuse of steel is minimal despite the apparent environmental and carbon benefits. New research shows that steel can be reused in a wide range of construction applications and contribute towards a more circular economy.
Chair: Dr. Katherine Adams, Technical Director, ASBP
DISRUPT: New circular economy business models to accelerate steel reuse
Dr. Asselia Katenbayeva, Research Associate, ASBP
ARMOUR: Innovative steel reuse in artificial reefs
Will Bateman, Founder, CCell
Wednesday 8th March, 14:30-15:15, Materials Stage – Overcoming barriers to mass timber construction
Mass timber construction can provide an opportune route to decarbonisation in our built environment, however extensive research has identified difficulties in regard to insurance. A new industry-recognised ‘playbook’ aims to provide a practical resource to help overcome these challenges and streamline the process of obtaining insurance for both construction and ongoing occupation of mass timber buildings.
14:30 Welcome from the Chair – Simon Corbey, Director, ASBP
14:35 The Mass Timber Insurance Playbook
– Jim Glockling, Independent Consultant, Glockling Consulting (former Director of Fire Protection Association and RISCAuthority)
– Philip Callow, Founder, Mass Timber Risk Consulting
14:55 Collaboration is key: Early stage engagement between designers and insurers – Kelly Harrison, Director, Whitby Wood
