At the latest Gregg Latchams Construction Breakfast at the Watershed Bristol, we welcomed Ramboll UK to discuss The Future Homes Standard in Bristol with a room of over 80 industry professionals.
Ramboll UK, one the country’s leading engineering and design consultancy companies, presented a review of the proposed changes to Building Regulations Parts L&F followed by an explanation of the Future Homes Standard which looked into the potential financial and practical implications for current and future projects.
The presentation focused on the use of heat pumps in both domestic and non-domestic projects, in compliance with new regulations. Chris Jones and Phil Kelly informed the audience that they have been using heat pumps that meet net-zero carbon targets across cities in the Nordics and showed that using such heat pumps in Bristol will contribute to the city’s 2030 zero carbon target.
After an engaging presentation, Ramboll opened the floor to allow attendees to ask their burning questions. We discussed future developments in Bristol, the heat that sits below us all and how companies/developers can make sure they meet the zero-carbon target.
David Morris, Head of Construction at Gregg Latchams, said; “Our Construction Breakfasts are very popular and offer great opportunities to those who are choosing to invest in the region. I’d like to thank all who attended and Ramboll UK for its engaging presentation and great follow-up discussion.
“I think I speak for everyone when I say it’s great to be part of the conversations that contribute to the development of Bristol and give sector professionals that little bit of extra technical insight to help them be the best they can be and meet their targets.
“We are looking forward to more discussions next year, beginning with the Bank of England update in January.”
