Nodding to the incredible role of The Green Register in improving the awareness and understanding of green methods of construction, Bristol’s Lord Mayor welcomed guests (many of which representing the best and brightest within the sustainable building world) to explore the Bristol Aquarium, an underwater world with complementary tea and crumpets – a preamble to heading upstairs to the venue’s rooftop training room.
As the not-for-profit membership organisation championing sustainable construction practices within the wider industry, The Green Register offers expert and unbiased training across the board so as best to, firstly support the construction sector, but also promote best practice in areas of sustainability and green building processes. Presently, the register is celebrating its 15th year representing and supporting sustainability within the industry, offering key training, membership and networking avenues to the wider sector.
At the event, there were a series of short sessions with technical advice to highlight key areas of importance such as heat loss, air tightness and moisture control. Additionally, a number of longstanding members of The Green Register also gave a series of talks, walking guests through their experience of membership with the register and how it has benefited them.
Commenting on the day, Lucy Pedler, Director of The Green Register enthused: “We were absolutely delighted to celebrate with so many of our members and guests at the Bristol celebration – it makes all our hard work worthwhile and we had some terrific feedback about our plans for the next 15 years.”
