Buildings for the Future Conference

July 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


We are delighted to invite you to our one day conference, Buildings for the Future, an inspirational day of sharing, showcasing, discussions and problem solving for those in the not-for-profit sector and beyond.

The day is relevant for people working to make their buildings more sustainable, resilient and energy efficient in the face of climate change. This will cover heritage buildings, new builds, or rented properties and will include targeted sessions for those at different stages of the sustainability journey. Our aim is that you will be equipped with practical ideas and useful connections to take away and apply to your own buildings and projects.

We will begin with an opening talk from the Watershed’s Director, Dick Penny, followed by case studies from successful projects, a panel discussion on building performance, and a series of practical workshops. And (it goes without saying) plenty of time for networking.

Confirmed topics include:

  • Presentation on the Whitworth Gallery’s completed building project and the road to sustainability
  • Workshops on energy reporting and monitoring, and on alternative approaches to sustainable building projects
  • Opportunity to have a site visit to Aardman Studios and see first-hand their new sustainable building.
  • Full agenda to follow…
