This week, CAT joins Natural Building UK (NBUK) in the Natural Building Area at Futurebuild 2019.
Previously known as Ecobuild, the event – which takes place 5-7 March at London’s ExCeL centre – is devoted to the future of the built environment. CAT and NBUK are there to ensure that natural, low impact building materials are on the agenda.
The NBUK Natural Building area will be dedicated to providing free educational information and demonstrations, showcasing natural materials, and exhibiting companies that work in the UK natural building industry.
CAT carpenter and tutor on our Tiny House courses Carwyn Lloyd Jones will give demonstrations in straw bale building alongside demos of hempcrete and earth building from leading experts, including Rowland Keable of Earth Building UK and Ireland and Alex Sparrow of Hemprete UK, both of whom are also CAT course tutors.
An ‘ask the expert’ area will give builders, architects and DIYers the opportunity to get in-depth advice on natural construction materials from industry experts, whilst displays of informational posters and materials gives people the chance to learn more about the background to sustainable building.
Futurebuild 2019 is free to enter – just register for your place at https://www.futurebuild.co.uk/
