Keystone Launches Free Webinar Series
Keystone Group announces the launch of Keystone Live this autumn with a series of free webinar debates featuring expert industry speakers. Introducing four separate webinars, the series covers a range of topics and issues including the delivery of net zero housing, offsite construction, designing with non-combustible materials and how the industry is tackling climate change.
The first online debate, ‘How are we going to deliver Net Zero Housing?’, takes place on Thursday 29th September. With the UK facing the ambitious target of being net zero by 2050, the latest changes to Building Regulations are an all-important stepping stone to the Future Homes Standard. But with more stringent standards in the pipeline, is this achievable? Developer This Land wanted to explore modern methods of construction to help create affordable, well-constructed, sustainable homes built in the most efficient construction timeframe. To help achieve this, This Land required a fast-tracked roof system and one that would allow them to create additional useable room in roof space. Smartroof met the demands.
The second in the webinar series on Thursday 12th October, ‘Does Offsite Construction Offer a Credible Solution to Addressing the Need for More Housing, Improved Quality and Better Value?’ focuses on the benefits of offsite construction and why the industry needs to increase its adoption. Panelists include Mark Farmer, CEO of Cast, Stephen Wightman, UK MMC Lead at Faithful+Gould, Kevin Dundas, MMC & Offsite Manager at Wilmott Dixon and our very own Kevin Sherlock, Managing Director at Smartroof.
Thursday 3rd November sees the webinar series ask the question: ‘Is the Construction Industry Doing Enough to Tackle Climate Change?’. Will Arnold, Head of Climate Action at Institution of Structural Engineers, Dr Oliver Jones, Research Director at Ryder Architecture and Nitesh Magdani, Director of Net Positive Solutions will offer their insight and perspectives and what we need to do as an industry to slow climate change.
The final webinar on Thursday 16th November, ‘Designing with Non-Combustible Materials’ will explore the challenges and key considerations when designing tall buildings and how products have evolved to meet new regulations. Ready to share their experience are expert speakers including Richard Smith, Head of Standards, Innovation & Research at NHBC and Nigel Shields, Director of Quality at Durkan.
