Tuesday 27th October 2020 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting
The philosophy of the circular economy is to work towards zero waste operations, in which we maintain, repair, upgrade, repurpose, reuse and recycle everything we use in a continual loop. At a time when climate change and sustainability are at the top of the agenda for all of us, the studies into the circular economy are crucial to forging sustainable and responsible working solutions in the building conversation and construction sector.
GCHT are therefore delighted to present this exclusive CPD lecture by two leading experts, Katie Carter and Roger Curtis from HES; Katie will provide an overview of the circular economy, followed by a look into some case studies with Roger.
This event is presented as part of our “GCHT Conservation and Climate Change” series.
Katie Carter works in Historic Environment Scotland’s Climate Change Team as the Circular Economy Project Officer. Her main work areas are waste reduction, sustainable procurement, resource efficiency, litter prevention and encouraging innovation. She is also involved in contributing to a wider understanding of how the historic environment is already inherently circular, how it can integrate circular principals more widely and support systems change, and how it can contribute to Climate Change targets.
Roger Curtis is a Chartered Building Surveyor with a background in construction work on historic and traditional buildings, and started work in construction with a building conservation contractor in central Scotland. He joined Historic Environment Scotland in 2006, and his work includes trials and demonstration work relating to energy efficiency in older buildings, climate change adaptation, the use and specification of traditional materials and emergency repair.
All GCHT CPD sessions are recognised by the IHBC, and attendees can obtain a CPD certificate upon completion.
£15 per person / £10 for students.
