February 2015 issue

Ecobuild, the world’s leading event for the sustainable built environment is fast approaching. From 3rd – 5th March, this renowned exhibition will fill the halls of London’s ExCeL to provide a comprehensive platform for sourcing new and innovative solutions for the green building industry.

According to the organiser, for the first time, visitors to Ecobuild can access formal CPD opportunities by attending any official Ecobuild seminar session at the 2015 event, including a brand new Building Information Modelling (BIM) stream.

Led by the NBS, Ecobuild will host sessions to help every professional implement BIM within their business – from services engineers, facilities managers and surveyors, to designers and architects from practices large and small. The NBS has identified some key themes as a result of its latest BIM report, which will be covered in a variety of interactive seminars, panel sessions and debates. For more information on these informative seminars, turn to page 42.

You will also find in this dedicated preview a selection of exhibitor highlights from suppliers who are certainly worth a visit. Be sure to also pop by the Mixed Media stand on S4006 to meet the team, peruse our other industry titles or simply take a virtual tour around our user-friendly online products.

Elsewhere in this edition, we profile some outstanding projects. Of particular note is the stunning transformation and reuse of a former derelict art deco cinema. The building, which was originally designed by Frank Verity who produced some of the most ornate public buildings in London during the early 20th century, has been painstakingly adapted to the stylish Shepherds Bush Pavilion Hotel. To find out more, turn to page 26.
