ASBP team members are participating in sessions throughout the conference:

DAY 1

From circular towards regenerative construction (11:30 – 13:00)

Katherine Adams joins ASBP Patron Members, Morgan Sindall Construction, for an interactive workshop, facilitated by Christiane Lellig, Specialist Advisor Regenerative Systems Change, Woodknowledge Wales. Morgan Sindall’s Regenerative Twin project set out to drive change across the construction supply chain from a major contractor’s position. By bringing together a team from a broad range of disciplines within the supply chain the project explored the use and complexities of regenerative materials and their impact on carbon, biodiversity, social justice and capex. This workshop elevates learnings from the project and looks at how we can work towards regenerative construction through our own projects and collaborations.

DAY 2

Development of embodied carbon and footprint assessment tools (14:00–15:30) 

A demonstration and discussion workshop hosted by the ASBP in collaboration with Clara Koehler, Architect and Embodied Carbon Lead, Woodknowledge Wales. This session will be chaired by Simon Corbey, CEO, ASBP. Speakers to be announced soon.

The session will include a demonstration of the ‘Early-Stage Embodied Carbon Tool’ for architects, designers, and housing developers, followed by demonstration of the ‘Carbon Footprint Assessment Tool for Timber Framers and Sawmills’. These timber industry tools are outcomes of the ‘Home-Grown Homes 2 Project’. Delegates will be asked to provide user feedback on these prototype tools.
