CPD Seminar: Regeneration vs Redevelopment and The Impact on Public Realm

Date: 29 November 2022 (Tue)
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 PM
CPD Hours: 1.5


The construction industry is responsible for approximately 25% of global GHG emissions. A third of the emissions are associated with materials and construction processes as "embodied carbon".
Developers need to balance a wide variety of issues driving business plans that embrace both short and long-term goals. At the same time, they are increasingly accountable for the wider impacts their projects have on the surrounding environ­ment, peoples' lives and the global shift to net zero.
In this context, Oval will discuss the pivotal importance of Stage zero and the early strategic deci­sion-making processes impacting heritage assets, local communities and overall quality of public spaces shaping the evolution our public realm.
