With rising energy costs, as the requirement increases for more energy efficient homes and commercial buildings, the Fabric First principles are now being widely adopted, particularly within the structural timber sectors.

For the last decade innovators in the construction sector have been developing solutions to address areas of thermal bridging which occur when there is a gap between materials and the structural surfaces. By improving the airtightness of the building fabric and the thermal performance of the structure - cold bridging can be eliminated and thermal performance enhanced - reducing heat loss, carbon emissions and ultimately, offering vast savings on energy consumption.

Numerous technologies looking to maximise offsite manufacturing, have embraced the Fabric First building principles, they are now gaining traction with the end users -  home owners and developers – particularly in the self build,  education, health care and social housing sectors, where sustainability and ‘whole life costs’ of the building are crucial to the specifying decision process.

The latest technologies will be on show at the Fabric First Event, being held on 18 November 2015 at the Inmarsat Conference Centre, 99 City Road, London, EC1Y 1AX. 

The event brings together distinguished and pioneering speakers from a broad spectrum of the industry drawing upon their considerable experience to deliver a comprehensive programme of policy and regulation presentations, technology and project case studies.

Speakers include:

Steve Hornblow - A2 Dominion
Douglas Drewniak - Bio Regional
Ian Loughnane - Kingspan Timber Solutions
Christopher Jofeh - Arup
Shaun Fitzgerald - Breathing Buildings

Notes to Editor

1£25 Tickets limited to first 25 delegates

FABRIC FIRST is a one day conference and exhibition designed to present the benefits of adopting ‘fabric first’ methodologies in respect of modern energy efficient buildings.

The event brings together distinguished and pioneering speakers from a broad spectrum of the industry drawing upon their considerable experience to deliver a comprehensive programme of policy and regulation presentations, technology and project case studies.

The conference programme is supported by an exhibition of technology providers and networking sessions. It is ideally suited to developers, architects, contractors, RSLs, clients and house-builders looking to deliver high performance building fabric to create thermally efficient airtight structures and so optimise delivery to required standards without the need to use renewable technologies.
