Meet-Connect-Do Business

Helping you deliver project excellence

Attend the sbe forum as a complimentary project delegate

The sustainable buildings and estates forum has been specifically developed to meet the needs of estates teams across, higher education, healthcare, leisure, commercial and retail sectors.

Join us as our guest; as a complimentary project delegate you will have access to the full CPD-certified seminar programme sharing best practice,  as well as your own meetings schedule with the most relevant  suppliers, plus extensive opportunities to network with your fellow professionals. Away from your busy day-to-day environment allows you to focus, resulting in better, more meaningful conversations that are extended naturally through an enjoyable social programme that ensures the best use of your time.

We understand how time consuming it is finding the best business partners and suppliers, and the demands it places on you. It’s potentially overwhelming. We’ve done the hard work for you bringing together the best, most innovative suppliers including the specialists who are delivering Energy management services, HVAC, Sanitary Ware, Flooring, Modular/sports buildings, Lighting – internal & external, Water supply, Ceilings, Roofing/Green roofs, Cladding, Landscaping, Artificial surfaces, Fitness equipment, Windows and many more.

The sbe forum considers the needs of the estate over the long term, from master-planning through construction and the building in operation. Delegates will share their ideas for longer life buildings, reusing and upgrading existing stock, sourcing lower embodied carbon products, reducing site waste and using recycled materials from the foundation up.

Specifiers and suppliers at the sbe forum will discuss the materials and technologies that make a difference, from ground source heating to the solar panels on the roof; from low energy lighting and low water usage sanitaryware to low VOC paints and floorcoverings – not forgetting the permeable paving and the cycle spaces in the car park.

A blend of offsite and traditional techniques come together to help estates managers achieve the demanding targets set by BREEAM, while strategies such as Soft Landings can clarify the client brief for the outset, avoid reworking and wasted time and ensure operational performance is optimised from the start.

Thinking green at the sustainable buildings and estates forum is about ambition, where we want our estates to be in the next 20 – the next 50 – years! This means setting ambitious targets and exceeding them at every opportunity.
