BBM returning to curate The Waste Zone once again
Futurebuild 2019 Website
Dates: Tuesday 5th March until Thursday 7th March 2019
“Futurebuild is the evolution of ecobuild and fulfilment of the bold vision for the future that we first announced following the acquisition of the event at the end of 2016. Futurebuild 2019 brings together opinion-shapers, decision-makers and product innovators under a common purpose to explore the latest technologies and approaches, and debate the biggest issues facing the build environment – now and in the future – both in the UK and overseas.”
The Waste Zone will return to this year’s Futurebuild with new and extended features. Curated by our very own Duncan Baker-brown, the event space will contain a new Circular Economy Hub, a marketplace and new platform dedicated to direct interaction between visitors and manufacturers. This will allow for presentations of new and emerging materials, systems and groundbreaking ideas that will shape the future of sustainable construction industry. The Hub will be held in a unique and refreshing format of beach huts, developed and provided by the School of Architecture and Design at the University of Brighton. The exhibition space will be complemented by the Waste Zone seminar programme, which due to extraordinary success of 2018 will be further extended providing additional audience spaces. This years session will explore the ideas revolving around use of waste materials in the construction process and the use of existing and future buildings as material stores for the future.
With the focus is on creating a truly waste free experience, apart from the reusable exhibition beach huts, Futurebuild is also calling out for Cradle to Cradle Certified™ suppliers to provide their support in bring the Waste Zone to life.
The WasteZone discussions will be supported by an inspirational exhibition of the products, materials and buildings, as well as new digital platforms and films, which are enabling an emergent circular economy and proving “that there is no such thing as waste, just stuff in the ‘wrong place’.
