RIBA at futurebuild 2019
futurebuild 2019 will bring together opinion-shapers, decision-makers and product innovators working across the UK and internationally to debate the biggest issues facing the built environment.
From 5 - 7 March London's EXceL will come alive with industry professionals, and this year RIBA's presence is bigger than ever. Find out what we're up to here.
RIBA’s architect-designed pavilion – profiled as the ‘RIBA Marketplace’ and incorporating our Bookshop - was procured as an RIBA Competition won by Gundry + Ducker. The Marketplace will be a dynamic hub, providing networking opportunities for architects and other professionals in the industry and host our Bookshop with an unrivalled range of the best architecture, design and construction books from around the world.
Ask us about RIBA membership, recruiting the best talent with RIBA Jobs, our range of business services including pensions and insurance, or opportunities to promote products and services to architects and specifiers through RIBA Journal.
10:30 – 11:40 at the Buildings Hub theatre
In this session the RIBA Sustainable Futures Group will be presenting the latest developments on the RIBA Plan of Work. They will be discussing questions they often receive from practitioners, such as: how do I set up an in-house sustainable design process? How do I convince my clients to be more sustainable? What are the business benefits of sustainability? How do I deliver sustainable outcomes more consistently? And how do I measure the benefits?
