Bristol, Bath & surrounding areas Group
The Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas Local Group is now up and running, with a full programme of events for 2019.
The aims of the Local Group are threefold:
1. To share sustainable building knowledge with other like-minded people and promote best practice.
2. To build a strong network of sustainable building professionals in the local area.
3. To influence local sustainable building policy through engagement with local councils and policy-makers.
The group events will be a mixture of site visits and discussion events based around themes important to local group members. Group events will be located across the area – with the particular focus being on Bristol, Bath and West Wiltshire. Please see below for the latest Local Group event in the area.
If you would like to lead a discussion on a topic of interest to you, or have any projects which the Local Group would be able to visit, please contact the group leader below.
As with all AECB Local Groups, events are open to both AECB members and non-members.
