Do you have the tools you need to pitch your green infrastructure solutions?

Next Wednesday's Healthy Design, Healthy Places conference will provide landscape designers, contractors and their suppliers with the scientific evidence, financial projections and solution-focused case studies they need today to help them become the green infrastructure pioneers of tomorrow.

Meeting the growing need for healthier place-making is already requiring fresh approaches to the provision of green infrastructure.  From concept and design right through to installation and maintenance, there are unique and complex challenges to overcome. Are you fully prepared for these practical and technical challenges?

Delegates to Healthy Places, Healthy Design will walk away with:

  • The technical knowledge needed to show greening can be handled in a low maintenance way, allowing designs to be approved more easily.
  • Presentable, innovative and trending ideas to put "green" into the fabric and infrastructure of buildings - winning over clients
  • A better understanding of how to pitch designs or products by hearing first-hand from leading clients, such as Argent LLP and Lendlease on the challenges they need to solve
  • The knowledge you need to show clients how your product or design can solve their planning challenges such as wind mitigation, air quality, thermal insulation, lost habitat
  • The evidence to present a stronger case for greening including the latest thinking from the BRE’s biophilic office project

The Healthy Design, Healthy Places conference takes place at 15Hatfields, London and is the result of a special collaboration between Horticulture Week, World Architecture News and Planning for Housing and is chaired by London Legacy Development Corporation executive director of park and venues, Mark Camley

The stellar speaker line-up also includes Ken Trew, senior project manager at property developer Argent which is asset manager for the King's Cross redevelopment and Mehron Kirk, landscape architecture director at BDP, currently working on the City of Westminster’s Green Spine Project. 

Also presenting is Ed Suttie, research director, Building Research Establishment who is leading a major industry study into the benefits of biophilic design and Ewan Oliver, public realm development manager for leading property company LendLease, currently redeveloping London's Elephant & Castle area. 

Case studies and learnings from schemes such as the National Grid Car Park green wall will also feature at Healthy Designs, Healthy Places.

Crucially, delegates will hear from presenters on the latest solutions developed to overcome plant management and maintenance challenges, as well as from a leading property agent on the positive impact green infrastructure can have on property values.
