Launched at IET London: Savoy Place on 2 July 2019, a new report from the Green Construction Board (GCB) places its Recommendations in the context of the longer-term 2050 net-zero objective and asserts that new technologies and modern construction methods are not a pre-requisite for delivery.
However, the GCB response addresses the need for mass production of high-performance fabric and systems to apply the solutions at scale.
Using case studies to provide background evidence for recommendations on reducing energy demand and improving energy and system efficiencies, the report unequivocally supports the view that the Mission is deliverable.
Lynne Sullivan OBE, Architect, GCB Member and Chair of the GCB Buildings Mission Taskgroup, said: “We have focused, as a nearer-term objective, on reducing energy demand and improving energy and system efficiencies. Along with process efficiencies including better quality management and procurement practices, we demonstrate how the Challenge can be tackled pragmatically, building on current best practice.
