ASBP at London Build
ASBP will be involved in three sessions at the Sustainability Summit.
Wednesday 17th November, 12.00-13.50 – Circular Economy in Construction
ASBP Technical Associate Dr. Katherine Adams recently completed a PhD on construction and the circular economy and will take part in this panel session which includes ASBP Reducing Plastics in Construction Group member, Lynne Potter from Mace. Katherine will speak on our Reducing Plastics in Construction Group which is now in its 3rd year, plus provide on our update on our circular economy activities.
Thursday 18th November, 14:00-14:50 – Innovating with Recycled and Natural Materials
This session will focus on our 2-year long, EU-funded Interreg (Channel Manche) research project called BIO-CIRC, which recently passed the halfway mark. We have been working with partners from both sides of the Channel (Nomadeis, Back to Earth, Eden Renewable Innovations Ltd.) to investigate the potential reuse of a problematic waste source – polyester duvets. As part of the project we will develop three innovative insulation prototypes, made from a combination of re-fiberised polyester and bio-based materials (hemp and sheep’s wool).
Thursday 18th November, 15:00-15:50 – Exploring the Barriers and Opportunities for Mass Timber in Construction
This session will highlight the activities of our Timber Accelerator Hub project, which thanks to funding from the Laudes Foundation, aims to explore the barriers (e.g. fire safety, insurance) and opportunities for mass timber (such as cross-laminated timber, or CLT) construction in the UK. Phase 1 of the project is being led by Joe Giddings (ACAN) and involves regular stakeholder workshops with experts from across the construction, fire and insurance sectors, some of whom will be presenting at this session on their important work.
Exciting networking events and feature areas for 2021
