This Topic Support Network looks at the strategies, guidance and assistance given to improve the environmental, social and financial performance of the built environment.

Event Summary


This event is for those of you looking for a simpler, less onerous environmental rating scheme for your capital / Estates Development projects - especially those involving refurbishment or fit-out.

This workshop will review whether the RICS "Ska Rating" system fits the bill for lower cost projects - say under £5m.

University College London and several others have successfully used the existing"Office" version even for laboratory fitouts and now an AUDE / HEFCE-supported project is planning to develop a number of FHEI-specific criteria to complement the 100 or so existing.

Hear Peter James, Project Director for S-Lab, Hi Performance Buildings and HEEPI and Sally Sloan, Ska project Officer will share their understanding of the opportunities this lower-cost online offering provides.
