Pilkington is inviting the glazing industry, architects, specifiers and building control officers to take part in a live web chat at the Sustainability Now virtual exhibition on 12-13 May.

The web chat is an in-depth session analysing the impact of the latest changes to Part L 2010 of the Building Regulations.
Pilkington plays a key role in Sustainability Now - the online exhibition that offers the latest in sustainable and green solutions for both commercial and domestic buildings through a full conference programme, exhibitors and opportunities to network without the need to leave the office!
The high-quality conference programme includes Pilkington Regulatory Marketing Manager, Phil Brown, in web chat, ‘Toward zero-carbon in non-domestic buildings - latest news on Part L’, at 11.00am on 12 May. Phil will be joined by Thomas Lane, Building magazine Assistant Editor (technical); Sean Lockie, Director and Head of Sustainability at Faithful & Gould - one of the world's largest project and cost management consultancies; Matt Fulford, Head of Sustainability at international built asset consultancy EC Harris; and Nick Cullen, Partner at Hoare Lea consulting engineers.
The five experts give an insight into the impact of the changes to Part L 2010 on the commercial sector of the construction industry. The live Q&A session following the web chat gives attendees the opportunity to put their technical questions to the team.
Phil Brown said: “The changes currently planned for Part L will introduce the most significant changes to the current legislation for both new and existing non-domestic buildings seen to date. We’ll be helping industry professionals through these changes by offering a detailed analysis of the plans, the potential issues in the lead-up to 2019 and how these will affect those working to achieve significant carbon reduction demands.”
Phil Clark, UBM, organiser of the event, said: “Now in its fourth year, the Sustainability Now virtual event promises to deliver a great mix of content and interaction for busy industry professionals. It will tackle the impact of sustainability on the construction of new and existing domestic and commercial buildings. This event will showcase the latest developments and practical solutions through an accessible and intuitive virtual platform.”
