New projects inevitably mean new materials - whether retrofitting, redeveloping or constructing from scratch. This event will explore how materials can be used to have a more positive environmental impact, and the importance of the client-customer relationship in achieving sustainability goals. 

We will hear from the project team at Forestry England, who oversaw the new Delamere visitor centre in Cheshire. A £9m redevelopment project, the largest ever commissioned by Forestry England, has seen the construction of a large eco-friendly, timber-framed visitor centre with a new café and event spaces. The project included a range of sustainable materials and renewable technology and systems such as rainwater harvesting and sustainable drainage. 

Simon Corbey, Director of the Alliance for Sustainable Building Projects, will share his extensive experience with the network about types of materials that can be used to support a more sustainable project, and, importantly, materials to avoid.
