Construction New Homes For London

Stark statistics highlight that waste from construction, demolition and excavation represents 59% of the total UK waste, around 33% of UK carbon emissions come from the built environment, with 10% of UK carbon emissions coming from heating buildings alone.  Can we address this by getting to grips with construction options?  We discuss the role we can play in a roundtable discussion chaired by industry expert Tom Woolley.
