The conference - 'Sustainable Architecture Now - Delivering
Exemplar Buildings, Setting Future Standards' - will take
place on 22nd July 2008 at Dublin Castle.
Irelandís national policy commitments on sustainable energy
and CO2 abatement have set particularly
aggressive targets for the energy performance of the built
Delivery on this challenge will demand significant upskilling
across the totality of the building industry. Indeed, the
very concept of sustainability calls for integrated approaches
at various levels of delivery - from planning, design and
procurement, through to construction, operation and maintenance
of our buildings.
This notably includes meeting already significantly strengthened
building energy performance standards set in national and
local regulations and anticipating future demands.
Following the successful conference - 'Energy efficiency
for sustainable communities' - in January 2008, the focus
of this event is on practical delivery issues.
The day is composed of two parts -
- Working Debate & Open Forums - covering topics that
pose a particular practical challenge for the industry;
- Announcement of a suite of design competitions designed
to stimulate exemplar solutions.
The conference should be of particular interest to architecture,
construction, engineering and surveying professions active
in the building industry in both the private and public sectors.
