Luxton joins the line up for Ecological Building Systems BBA Intello seminar tour

Ecological Building Systems, the specialist in sustainable building products, has secured sustainable design expert and TV presenter, Charlie Luxton, as the guest speaker for the Swindon event on the company’s forthcoming seminar tour.

Taking place at The National Self Build and Renovation Centre, the Swindon seminar will kick-start the five-location tour on Tuesday 16th October, bringing together architects, specifiers and construction professionals for a full day’s programme of presentations, technical talks and practical demonstrations. The theme of the tour is ‘Optimum energy efficiency, freedom from structural damage and improvements in healthy living’. All five events will bring together international expertise in the use of high performance building products, building physics knowledge and innovative design to drive improved sustainability in the UK’s built environment.

As an architectural designer passionate about the environment and innovative approaches to more sustainable building design, Charlie was keen to get involved with the Swindon event, which is worth six structured CPD points and is relevant to five of the 10 RIBA CPD Core Curriculum topics. The presenter of More4 programmes ‘Building the Dream’, ‘Homes by the Sea’ and ‘Homes by the Med’, Charlie remains an active pioneer of sustainable architecture through his 8 person practice , Charlie Luxton Design, which is currently designing and building sustainable housing projects throughout the country.

Commenting on the forthcoming event, Charlie said:

“There are lots of opportunities for architects to find out about new products and design methodologies but there are very few events that bring together such a wide range of experts to provide joined up insights into how more sustainable, comfortable and robust buildings can be designed and constructed in practice.

“I am delighted to be part of the Swindon seminar, which will give me the opportunity to share my experiences in the sustainable design sector. I’m sure, like all the delegates, I will learn a lot from the day too.”

The seminar tour has been instigated by Ecological Building Systems in partnership with  airtightness specialist, pro clima from Germany, to celebrate the BBA approval of the company’s Intello Plus membrane, which is distributed exclusively in the UK by Ecological Building Systems.

Other speakers at all five events will include Jon Denyer, senior scientist on the BBA’s technical excellence team and Michael Foerster, engineer head of applications technology at pro clima.

From Swindon, the programme will tour venues in London (18th October), Belfast (6th November), Glasgow (8th November) and Birmingham (22nd November).
