Designed as a conduit for best practice in WLC to flow from academia to industry, the occasion offered opportunity for a panel of experts to press home the fact that a building should be for life, not just for Christmas.

This will necessitate provision of a lot of data, not all of which is readily available at present.
Professor Malcolm Horner of Dundee University said: “PFI/PPP opened up peoples eyes to the need to look at WLC. Another driver is the notion of sustainability, people will pay a premium for buildings with low operating costs.”
