Global mean temperatures have already reached 1.1°C above the pre-industrial average and are almost certain to reach the Paris Agreement’s aspirational limit of 1.5°C within the next decade. Yet, most buildings and infrastructures are designed to function in the climate of the 20th century, meaning they are not fit for purpose in our current climate, let alone for further changes expected in the coming decades. Whether you are a developer, designer, owner or contractor, join James Spears, Principal Geotechnical Engineer and David Brownstein, Senior Sustainability Engineer, as they discuss the risks that climate change poses to the built environment and ways to assess and mitigate these.
