Stephanie Palmer, Wienerberger, to speak at new architecture event

Stephanie Palmer, Sustainability Manager at Wienerberger, the world’s largest brick manufacturer, will appear as a guest speaker at the Brick Development Association’s latest CPD event on Tuesday 6th June 2017 at the Museum of Science & Industry Manchester. Stephanie will discuss clay brick’s role in the circular economy and highlight the understated credentials of brick as a sustainable construction material.

Stephanie has helped to develop the BDA’s vision for a circular economy in the built environment, complementing her role on several industry committees dedicated to addressing resource efficiency challenges within brick and roof tile manufacturing. At Wienerberger she supports multiple departments to embed environmental best practice and social responsibility in the company’s activities, consolidating its industry-leading sustainability agenda.

The presentation will complement the programme of workshops and seminars that explore the modern methods employed by brick manufacturers, those that work with the material, and the understated contribution that clay brick makes to our built environment.

Stephanie Palmer comments,
““The circular economy is often applied to products with a short lifespan and high turnover so adapting this concept for buildings, which are expected to last tens or even hundreds of years, has been a challenge for the sector. Architects and designers have a vital role to play in realising a circular economy for the built environment, which will help to reduce waste, carbon emissions and ultimately leave a positive legacy for future generations.”

As a dedicated member of the Brick Development Association and frequent supplier to outstanding brick buildings throughout the UK, Wienerberger contributes to an impressive resume of award winning projects. These include Foundry Mews, winner of best small housing award at the Brick Awards 2016 and Best Urban Regeneration project the same year, Block E West Hendon. The Brick Development Association is delighted to welcome Stephanie on-board alongside several industry experts for the exclusive Manchester CPD event.
