As part of its series of events on the future of the construction industry taking place in 12 countries, with the participation of an array of local experts, the organisers of BATIMAT, the international construction trade show, are pleased to invite industry professionals to a panel discussion at The Building Centre, in central London, on 30 June 2022. The event will also give participants an unrivalled preview of LE MONDIAL DU BÂTIMENT, the premier trade show for the construction industry taking place in Paris (France) from 3 to 6 October 2022.

LE MONDIAL DU BATIMENT is Europe’s leading exhibition for building materials and solutions, focusing on the construction industry of today and tomorrow. It will take place in early October 2022 (3 to 6 October) in Paris (France). This year, LE MONDIAL DU BÂTIMENT will include three trade shows: BATIMAT, IDÉOBAIN and INTERCLIMA, offering a unique insight into trends as well as challenges characterising the construction industry in 2022.

BATIMAT discusses the construction industry’s future at London event

The London event, at the end of June 2022, will feature eminent speakers such as Elaine Toogood, Director, Architecture and Sustainable Design, at The Concrete Centre; Cassion Castle, Director and Founder of Cassion Castle Architects; and, among other participants, Guillaume Loizeaud, Building Divison Director for BATIMAT.

Following the Paris Agreement on climate change of 2015, the UK became the first major world economy to pass laws to bring down all greenhouse gas emissions to Net Zero by 2050.

Construction is fast becoming a key area of interest, primarily due to the fact that it is estimated to contribute between 20% and 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint, while construction activities themselves are said to generate approximately 10% of the UK’s emissions directly. Therefore, the industry faces an unprecedented challenge and will need to innovate as well as make substantial changes and large investments, including the deployment of novel technologies that do not exist yet.

On 30 June 2022, at The Building Centre, in the heart of London, our speakers will share their views and experiences in implementing low-carbon solutions in the construction sector.
