Future Thinking Seminars

Join us for the latest series of Future Thinking seminars, designed especially for building services consultants.

Future Thinking Series 8

2018 signals step changes in the construction sector – including the publication of updates to the BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 and F-Gas regulations, which demand a further 44% reduction in HFC quotas in 2018.

Both will have a major impact on our industry in the next few months. So lead the way by gaining insights into the latest techniques that will drive the development of our future built environments.

You’ll gain CPD points, as well as getting the opportunity contribute to the consultation on the draft BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 standard and hear about the longer-term plans for BREEAM. So join us at a FutureThinking seminar near you.
