Event description

Description

SUMMARY

The UK built environment is well placed to deliver solutions that benefit our health and wellbeing, but experience suggests that there are a number of problems regarding the understanding and delivery of these outcomes. This conference explores both the technical problems and solutions and should contain essential knowledge for developers, designers, asset managers and constructors.

Supported by Zero Carbon Yorkshire and the University of Sheffield.
