Progressing sustainable construction in Cornwall

We would like to invite you to our free ‘Innovating for construction delivery’ Breakfast Meeting on Friday 13th October @ Pool Innovation Centre hosted by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and in association with Cornwall LEP & Cornwall New Energy. Directions can be found here

Sustainable growth is a core LEP principle.  The LEP Construction Strategy 2014-2020 highlighted the requirement to build a specialism for sustainable construction in Cornwall. 

This series of events focuses on supporting Cornwall’s Construction Industry from the Client all the way through the supply chain, to promote sustainable construction and raise the bar on the delivery of energy efficient buildings through innovation.

Why attend?

Aimed at local construction contractors who have an interest in new build, refurbishment or retrofit in Cornwall & Isles of Scilly. This breakfast meeting provides the opportunity to learn more about innovative methods of constructing and construction management that can help to deliver clients sustainability objectives at low net cost.
