With over 30 speakers packed into 3 parallel streams in the historic Royal Hospital Kilmainham, the conference investigates every aspect of sustainable building and design. The conference will open with a key note address from the Minister for Environment Phil Hogan.
The Conference will debate the critical issues facing property, design and construction professionals and will show case studies on exemplar projects where sustainable design strategies have resulted in a win-win solution for all stakeholders. Expert led technical workshops will ‘look under the hood’ of sustainability tools to investigate tricks of the trade etc.
