2019 M3 User Group

Presentation SlideBuilding Sustainable Homes

On Tuesday we took part in the 2019 M3 User Group event at The Crystal, one of the world’s most sustainable buildings, achieving Outstanding BREEAM accreditation and Platinum LEED accreditation. This event was a gathering of social housing providers from around the UK, including development reporting and maintenance professionals.

There were a series of interesting speakers discussing the challenges facing this sector, including our very own Principal Sustainability Consultant, Silvio Junges.

Silvio presented on Building Sustainable Homes and went onto highlight the changes in the Part L consultation document; which will effect all developers but particularly those working in the social and affordable housing markets.

Mike Fisher, Head of Technical at A2Dominion, a fellow panellist, explained how early engagement with AES Sustainability Consultants ensures that cost effective sustainable solutions can be implemented at an early stage and managed throughout the build to ensure compliance and a reduction to the design As-Built performance gap.
