Last week, PassivPod directors Clive Bonny and Mark Pellant joined hundreds of construction industry professionals at the South East Construction Expo 2018 at the South of England Event Centre.
The event offered fantastic opportunities to network, but more importantly the chance for those in the sector to connect, discuss and learn from each other.
Among the many talks scheduled was PassivPod director Clive Bonny, who held a session titled ‘The future of UK construction has arrived’ examining the current condition of the UK’s construction industry and how we can improve it.
If you’re interested in his talk you can access the slides here.
Other notable speakers included Wayne Hemingway MBE, who spoke about the importance of good design in “improving things that matter in life.”
Nikki Rae and Chami Coomasaru of Google DigitalGarage held sessions on digital marketing, digital advertising and data analytics, tailored to the construction industry.
Other disparate topics were covered, such as IP protection, cyber security and the Internet of Things, all with a focus on the construction industry.
There were also panel sessions, discussing the potential impact of Brexit, the skills gap in the construction industry and procurement in the South East.
PassivPod’s technical director Mark Pellant manned our stand and was on hand to chat all things PassivPod and to also offer his considerable insight into sustainable design and green construction methods.
The PassivPod team were excited to meet both new and well-established construction industry professionals and are already looking forward to next year’s event and the opportunity to spread our sustainable design message.
The PassivPod is a flexible innovative design which can be adapted for work, leisure, education, living and other uses. Our current four designs are an ecolodge, a zero carbon home, a classroom and an eco office pod.
While the PassivPod team is motivated by the wide ranging appeal and the business potential of PassivPod, it’s the powerful environmental and social impacts this project will have that drives them.
Both Clive & Mark are available for speaking engagements.
