Green future to be debated
HIGH-PROFILE names from UK construction and green technology have been lined up for a major conference in Stoke-on-Trent.
Longton's £11 million Centre of Refurbishment Excellence (CoRE), which opened in December, is holding its first conference on Thursday.
Speakers at the event will include sustainable design expert Lynne Sullivan, Ted Miller, head of operational learning at E.ON, and Dr Peter Bonfield, chief executive of BRE, which developed the internationally recognised BREEAM standard of environmental assessment.
CoRE chief executive Jonathan Davis said: "We have lined up a panel which includes some of the foremost professionals in architecture and the refurbishment industry to debate how we go beyond the Government's Green Deal to provide UK residents with low carbon housing fit for the future."
