In response to the climate crisis the Disrupt Lectures series promotes dialogue within the construction industry in order to collectively implement rapid & meaningful change. Improvements in the way we design and build can not only benefit our environment but also equip us to provide additional value to our clients and building users through cost savings, durability and maintenance benefits.
In the first of the Disrupt Lectures series Roy Fishwick of Cleveland Steel outlines the benefits of reusing steel components reclaimed from demolition. New guidance from The Steel Construction Institute makes it simpler to do this and Roy has been exploring how to bring this process into mainstream construction. The London 2012 Olympic Stadium designed by Populous and BuroHappold Engineering reused steel components to provide dramatic environmental and cost benefits. Please join us to discuss the potential for adopting this approach.
