Sharing Practical Learnings from Large Scale EV Deployments

10:30  -  11:20

As businesses across the country seek to set new ways of working, many are re-focusing on their net zero targets and supporting the nation’s green recovery. With transport generating the largest volume of CO2 in the UK, at about 30% of the UK’s CO2 emissions, transitioning to a zero-emission fleet is the obvious place to start. However, large scale electric […]

Active Mass Dampers for Next Generation Sustainable Floor Structures

10:20  -  10:30

In multi-storey buildings, floors contribute about 60% of their total mass. As much as half of this material is wasted as a result of over-specification in floor structural design to manage risks due to unknown loads and structural behaviour. The main driver in this wasteful over-design is not safety (against collapse) but serviceability, chiefly avoiding excessive floor vibrations in normal […]
