  • It’s been 6 years since we looked at all things digital through the lens of sustainability and a lot has changed since then.
  • So we are pleased to announce the return of GreenBIM – with an extended event and a packed agenda.

Join us for a diverse set of presentations including:-

  • Using visualisation to improve sustainability brought to you by James Simpson, Head of Centre for Digital Production, Rose Bruford College
  • How to deliver, record and manage low carbon design solutions in the UK from Johanna Jarvinen, One Click LCA
Keeping things interactive again we will also be running another panel discussion session with the following great line up:-
  • Brian Murphy – Green Building Calculator
  • Lee Barnett – Curtins
  • Johanna Jarvinen, One Click LCA
We are also pleased to announce the return of an international speaker discussing the benefits that an agile BIM framework can bring to more sustainable decision making.
We welcome François Muzard, COO and Co-Founder of BRICKS
Join us for what promises to be a very informative session!
