In London, from 7-9 March, Europe’s largest exhibition and conference on sustainable development in the construction industry once again attracted tens of thousands of visitors and hundreds of speakers and exhibitors. Traditionally, Futurebuild (formerly known as Ecobuild) was visited by a delegation from Russia and Russian-speaking countries. In addition to RuGBC chairman, Guy Eames, this year’s Russian representatives included architect Nina Kisleva from Volgograd and Dmitry Zaitsev (Layer Plastics Plant, St. Petersburg).
“It was a great opportunity to meet leading figures and longstanding partners from the European green building world, such as architect Bill Dunster (Zedfactory), the BRE team, meet the UKGBC CEO and visit a host of interesting events and stands. The industry is alive and well and growing fast.”Guy Eames
