Our Technical Director, Katherine Adams (of Reusefully), is taking part in an exciting ‘TEA Talks’ reuse event at Lancaster University on 3 November 2023.

TEA talks are a series of informal talks from our School of Architecture on the theme of  Technology, the Environment, and the role of Architecture, now and in the future. This session will bring together experts from academia, practice and industry to present and discuss what are the key measures to accelerate material reuse in construction, use material passports and create a circular economy. Katherine’s talk will focus on pre-redevelopment and pre-demolition audits in the UK and wider policy.
