When tall building sustainability initiatives only consider individual components, without maintaining focus on the bigger picture, they may miss opportunities to maximize impact. This workshop takes a bird’s-eye view of effective, sustainable skyscraper construction, examining several approaches to enabling a net-positive effect of skyscrapers on their surroundings. The implications of tracing and tracking building materials through their lifecycle are explored, from construction, to repair, to responsible disposal or reintroduction into the supply chain. Topics include discussions on how tall buildings can create their own energy, purify their own water supply, and ultimately generate more than they consume; as well as the role of tall building energy use and production as part of an overall master plan.

When: Monday, 28 October 2019, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Venue: Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel at the Aqua Tower
