This year’s long-awaited STBA and SPAB Conference will take place online in three manageable chunks spread over three days focusing on key issues affecting the traditional built environment: embodied carbon, skills and research. We have some of the country’s leading speakers to help us understand the underlying issues, explore some potential solutions and then discuss all this together with a Q&A session at the end of each morning.

Day 3 - 13th October - RESEARCH

Underpinning all of the above is research. It is therefore imperative that we are all up to speed with what’s going on from some of our top researchers in the field. These can be both academically funded or undertaken from the keenest of practitioners. In today’s session we have a mix of both. Leeds Beckett University have compiled a huge sample of retrofitted projects and assessed them. Here we will learn some salient lessons and garner some direction forward. Archimetrics have concluded there long-term research programme with SPAB and we shall be treated to a final update and set of conclusions and lastly we have an in-depth practical study looking at carbon within a listed building.
