Urbano Build is a programme of regular networking events in London aimed at architects, developers, property investors, designers, interior designers and other professionals associated with the built environment sector to make connections, gather information, create associations and find new business opportunities.

Urbano Build events are stripped down conferences, exploring interesting themes and built around great speakers, where the the focus is on networking and creating connections and opportunities. You always meet a diverse range of businesses and their representatives in a lively session of informal but facilitated networking.

For the past five years, Mark Herring, Urbano Network's MD, has been bringing together audiences to hear high-profile sector speakers, such as the The Minister for Architecture, the Chairs of CABE and BURA, Martha Schwartz (landscape architect), Theis + Khan, Jackie Sadek, CEO of UKRegeneration and Mark Bew, the Government's BIM Champion, amongst others.

Our guest speaker at this event is Andrew Kinsey, Sustainability Director at Mace Group PLC.

Andrew will look at Mace's pioneering work in delivering challenging targets across the group in sustainability, which they recently reported have included an 18% cut in waste (including diverting 91% waste from landfill) and carbon reduction.

Andrew will look at how a construction company can achieve such ambitious targets from a strategic and operational level. He will also look at looming issues for the sector, including the new European Timber Regulations and sustainable timber which he describes as construction's potential horsemeat scandal.

"I have a lot of time for Urbano Build network. They have a philosophy of "exchanging value" that I find rather empowering. Urbano Network is a facilitating vehicle, brokering opportunities for smaller companies to get involved, both with each other, and with larger partners. They champion quality suppliers, especially in areas such as BIM, design and new technologies."
Jackie Sadek, CEO - UK Regeneration
