Eco Build Conference 2011\

Hawkins\Brown was invited by the UK Green Building Council to participate at the recent Eco Build 2011 Conference at the Excel Centre, London.

Jason Martin, Partner, led a discussion about the need to focus on big energy savings rather than the use of 'eco bling.' Eco bling is a term used to describe inappropriate use of technical solutions such as wind turbines or solar panels to show off environmental credentials but which do not in fact help to cut carbon emissions.

Jason demonstrated what can be achieved through the work we are currently undertaking with the Low Carbon Workplace involving the refurbishment of existing office buildings such as Premier House in Twickenham.

Eco bling was banished to room 101 on the say so of the audience!
