Webinar: The Future of Green Construction in Greater Lincolnshire hosted by Team Lincolnshire & The Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub


Join Team Lincolnshire, in partnership with Business Lincolnshire, at our next webinar dedicated to sustainable construction.

During the session we will be discussing the opportunities and barriers of building sustainably and will take a look at how technology and innovation can help construction companies meet the future needs for our county and support efforts in achieving net zero carbon.

We will review where Greater Lincolnshire is now and gain a greater understanding of what the ambition and future of sustainable construction is for the county, along with what is needed to achieve this.

There will be a discussion on what the barriers are to delivering sustainable construction and how the industry can redesign to bring out the opportunities using technology and innovation.

Finally, Morgan Sindall will present a case study on the GSK Carbon Neutral Laboratory project which they delivered recently for the University of Nottingham, illustrating how a zero carbon agenda is realised in practice, and what the experience has taught them in terms of achieving low carbon outcomes on future projects.
