The Oxford Club of Constructing Excellence is pleased to invite you to the third event of our 2014 calander. Paul Ciniglio will talk about future allowable options for new homes in the context of 2016 Zero Carbon.
Industry figures warn that watered-down energy efficiency targets in changes to Part L and delay in implementation could jeopardise goal for 2016
The government’s move to water down energy efficiency targets in its changes to Part L of the Building Regulations means the industry now faces a stiff challenge to meet the 2016 zero carbon target, experts have warned.

Paul will speak about the emerging carbon compliance standards and future ‘allowable solutions’ for new homes as proposed by the Zero Carbon Hub. He will outline the possible options that could be followed including retro fit.
The event will be of interest to Housing Associations, Consultants, Contracting and Sub Contracting organisations involved in housing and working towards 2016 Zero Carbon.
Paul Ciniglio is employed as Sustainability Strategist Manager for First Wessex. The main focus of his role is to reduce the environmental impact of the housing association’s activities.

He has worked in a variety of roles in the construction industry for 29 years. He has a diploma and a first class Bachelor of Science honours degree in Building Surveying, a Master of Arts in Sustainable Development, is a Chartered Environmentalist and a member of the Institution of Environmental Sciences.
In 2012 Paul was crowned Green Social Housing Champion of the Year at the Sustainable Housing Awards. As part of his role at First Wessex, Paul has been working closely with the Zero Carbon Hub, the organisation advising Government on the route to zero carbon housing from 2016.
