Knowledge Forum

In Partnership with:

NEW FOR 2019 - Take a more comprehensive look into the biggest issues facing the built environment through the Knowledge Forum. Throughout the three days, you can attend four different Workshop programmes, each led by industry leading partners, academia and professional bodies who will provide useful solutions and guidance for construction professionals to take back to the office.

Knowledge Forum Workshop Programme 

Building Sustainably… Building Productively… Building Responsibly... 

BRE Academy will be hosting a series of informative workshops. Each day, industry experts will deliver a series of engaging presentations and answer questions on subjects such as Offsite Construction, Urban Planning, Retrofit, Circular Economy, BIM and much more.

Hosted by the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) and the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), these workshops will provide invaluable guidance on how the industry can improve its image and reputation by engaging with, and caring for local communities, and doing more to care for the health and wellbeing of the workforce. They will also provide practical advice on skills issues, the provision of better training, and valuable guidance on apprenticeship recruitment as the industry looks to improve both recruitment and retention across construction.

Research, education and professional practice

The aim of the research, education and professional practice seminar programme is to provide the opportunity for smaller groups of 30-40 people to explore and discuss a topic in greater depth than is possible in the larger Futurebuild Hub seminars.

A broad and varied programme is offered by academic departments, professional institutions, specialist associations and practitioners. The subject matter ranges from a detailed research project such as ‘Shaping community energy for a more sustainable built environment’ to better understanding and interrogating the draft Environment Act.

Day one: Specification

Let's Talk Specification is a new digital media platform for the construction industry. LTS will host a series of seminars, workshops and CPD’s focusing on product research and development, testing and manufacturing processes. A range of manufacturers will discuss the rigorous testing of these high-quality products, as well as detailing the technical and independent information you require.

Day two: BIM

Hosted by BIM4M2, The institution of Engineering and Technology and supported by Wienerberger, focusing on the digital built environment and re-launch of BIM4M2. The knowledge forum will offer five dedicated workshops. Each session will explore challenges and opportunities surrounding digitisation of the built environment, including manufacturing, supply chain and asset information.

Day three: Materials

GIGA and mindful MATERIALS presents a unique approach to bringing the industry together around materials transparency.  Join the moderated, interactive workshop focused on material sourcing and specification from two different vantage points, in two half day sessions:
1. A Contractor & Owner Perspective - Success, Challenges & Solutions
2. Building Rating Systems & Certification Bodies – Industry Collaboration and Program Synergies

The workshop sessions are free to attend but you must book your place in advance. Secure your place on the workshops by registering today (if you have already registered, you can edit your booking to include a space in the workshops).
