Low Carbon Construction Workshop

Building a home or structure for work is usually the single biggest carbon waste output of any individual. Data from the Gates Foundation shows that urban areas, cities, will double between 2050-2026, thereby increasing the use of construction materials in the process. 

Through this talk, you will learn about how the construction industry affects the climate and your personal well being. Topics include:

1. Low carbon concrete using biochar and other methods

2. Acoustics for better personal and professional space

3. Upcycled plastic in construction materials

4. How to design well - mapping out considerations for climate

5. Low carbon and roof cooling paint with biochar
