Low Carbon Principles in Practice | HJ Housing Week 2022

Join Caroline O’Flaherty, Commercial Property Partner for this conversation with Elfed Roberts, Head of Sustainability and Innovation at Pobl Group.

With over 18,000 homes for affordable rent, Pobl is one of the largest housing associations in Wales and has placed decarbonisation of new homes, reducing cost and working with tenants on sustainability at the heart of what they do. As a chartered architect and previously Head of Development for Pobl, Elfed has significant experience of urban design, regeneration and placemaking and his new focus on a low carbon approach, its practicalities and the lessons learned so far are relevant across the social housing sector and beyond.

Caroline & Elfed explore the reality of low carbon approaches on site, the additional steps needed at design stage and subsequently to ensure that all parties contribute towards a successful project.
