Keystone Group is delighted to launch Keystone Live 2022 this autumn with a series of free webinar debates featuring a stellar line-up of industry speakers. Introducing four separate webinars, the series covers a range of topics and issues including the delivery of net zero housing, offsite construction, designing with non-combustible materials and how the industry is tackling climate change.

Past Events

Thursday 29 September, 10.30am - 12pm

How are we going to deliver net zero housing?

During this free webinar, our speakers will be discussing:

  • How do we address the performance gap? How do we build as designed?
  • Is the target of 75-80% less carbon emissions from new homes when compared to current regulations achievable?
  • What are the key areas we should be looking at to help improve the fabric of buildings?
  • How can manufacturers support the drive for new zero? What role does product innovation play?

Does offsite construction offer a credible solution to addressing the need for more housing, improved quality and better value?

This webinar will discuss:

  • How critical is it that as an industry we take on board the benefits of offsite and challenge the way we design and build?
  • How are organisations such as the AIMCH – Advanced Industrialised Methods for the Construction of Homes – helping to accelerate adoption?
  • Where does offsite sit when we look at the perfect storm of increased regulations and legislation, skills and materials scarcity and a closer scrutiny on quality, competence and performance?
  • Should we accept that more offsite assembly of selected components and systems, rather than whole house, is a route to adoption and a best of both worlds approach?
  • Is adoption of offsite and MMC at a level we expect it to be?
