There is often a perception that compromises have to be made when using natural building materials such as increased costs and construction time but this is not necessarily the case and there are many benefits to avoiding using damaging conventional materials.
At this month's Twilight Talk Thomas Robinson of Adaptavate made a strong case for using natural building materials, trying to bust any myths and misconceptions and give tips on what is needed here to meet our carbon targets.

We hope you'll join us for our next free-to-attend Twilight Talk on 11th April, where we’ll hear from Bow Tie Construction about an innovative solution to poor quality Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manuals that will help residents as well as professionals.
Other upcoming events if you're interested in using natural building materials include the second event in our ‘Fabric First’ training series on 29th March Roofs, External Walls and Floors - Best Practice Refurbishment Solutions for Residential Projects and Lifecycle Analysis of Building Materials coming up in May.
We hope to see you at an event soon and, if you’re not already a member of The Green Register, attending Roof, External Walls and Floors or another of our 2-hour+ training events will open the door, enabling you to apply for membership.
