The Building Centre in London is holding a free REHAU workshop on 15 November, with panel debates and talks led by experts across the construction industry.
With the industry under more scrutiny than ever to ensure the following of greener practices, it is important that commercial plumbing looks towards the future to find efficient and productive ways of reducing its carbon footprint. Potential methods of which include the use of bio-based polymers and new pipework materials.
Visitors to the event – ‘The Future of Sustainable Plumbing’ – will be able to network and discuss ways that the industry can continue to strive for a sustainable future. Alongside this, expert speakers will be discussing many of the current hot topics that are currently important within the space.
These expert speakers will be covering a wide array of topics, including Laing O’Rourke’s Jim Jaffa and Christos Pavlou highlighting the latest design trends in piping installations that are striving to make products more efficient.
Franz Huelle from REHAU (pictured below) will be discussing the latest innovations in pipework solutions in the industry, whilst Andreas Frank from Borealis will present about renewable feedstock for polymers, which sees the use of vegetable oils as a bio-based polymers feedstock. Alongside this, Julia Torrubia and Margarita Kobrina from Atelier Ten will be talking about the impact of plumbing on the whole life cycle of carbon, an important part of the wider picture of sustainability.
Other speakers at the event include Lucy Sherburn from Fairheat, who will give an overview of the new technical requirements set to be introduced under upcoming heat network regulations and Hydrotec’s Amar Lakhani will discuss the chemical-free disinfection of plumbing pipework.
At the Building Centre in Central London, REHAU’s hub will play host to the event with a variety of products and solutions on show. There will be an opportunity to experience some of these solutions for today’s challenges in the commercial plumbing industry right now.
The event is completely free to attend and looks set to be an insightful meeting of many key industry people and companies, who can look to come together to help guide the commercial plumbing industry into the future.
