What is the session about?

This session with Keepmoat Homes will provide you with an overview of the risk and opportunities onsite for the construction sector as a result of climate change.

It will particularly focus on the short term impacts - some of which are already happening and others which will impact construction sites in the next 5 years - and explore what this means for construction works and what you can do to combat and control this. 


What will I achieve?

By joining this session you will:

  • Be given a short introduction on climate change and its impact, TCFD, and the difference between adaptation and mitigation
  • Understand climate change scenarios, and the risks and opportunities associated 
  • Find out what this means to construction works, including exploring pollution risks, safety risks, delays to construction programmes due to ground conditions and air quality
  • Learn what can be done to combat this through planning ahead, controls and adapting operations


What level is the session and do I need any particular skills?

This is a beginner level session and assumes you have limited knowledge of the topic.
