This year’s Spring School will consider Wales’ Drive for zero carbon, against the backdrop of the introduction of new Building Regulations. Where does Wales fall within the framework of global warming? Is the devolution of the Building Regulations an opportunity or a barrier? What is the timetable and the future of these new regulations? We’re beginning to look at themes around certain ideas:

• Existing Buildings: what’s planned, and how can it be achieved
• What are the choices of sustainable and renewable energies
• What design targets can be achieved and what can be used
• What sustainable materials and construction systems are available.

Speakers: Professor Phil Jones, Welsh School of Architecture and Chair, Building Regulations Advisory Committee Wales; Colin King, BRE Wales; and Jonathan Hines, Architype. Pat Borer/ and David Lea will give the Inspiration Hour lecture and will consider the WISE Building in context of the zero carbon agenda. Other speakers include Chris Jofeh and Phil Roberts.

The day will be chaired by Gill Webber, Director of Communications at the RIBA; and Andy Sutton, RSAW President.
