GreenBIM at Design and Preconstruction 

(in partnership with CIBSE and GreenVision)

WSP, 3 White Rose Office Park, Millshaw, Park Lane, Leeds LS11 0DL

This conference pairs two revolutionary movements of Green Building and BIM to create environmentally friendly design through a streamlined process. This knowledge packed afternoon will discuss practical strategies, techniques, and real-life case studies of projects and how BIM can be used to optimise design in order to achieve better environmental outcomes for buildings and their occupants.  


This not-to-be-missed event will offer presentations, workshops, quick fire Pecha Kuchas and the opportunity to network over great food and a pint of Yorkshire real ale.
