||Session E1: University of the West of England - Low Carbon Residences (2030 approach to reducing carbon)
Matt and Professor Boddy will talk about the approach that UWE and Stride Treglown has taken with the new Low Carbon Residence’s project and how this links into the university’s 2030 strategy to become Carbon Zero. The new residences will be one of the biggest Passivhaus projects in the world and the first phase of 900 bedrooms will deliver a mix of bedroom types with facilities including study, social, activity spaces and a new campus café. The sustainability strategy includes a biodiverse landscape with a strong focus on creating an active landscape for students. The project will have received planning approval and be out to tender during the conference. Lessons learned and new sustainable technologies, including those integrated and those dismissed will be explained.

||Session E2: Reducing costs with the power of procurement
Procurement is sometimes seen as a burden that introduces delays to projects and stifles innovation. In this session Fusion21 will talk about how good procurement helps universities deliver savings and is essential to a sustainable zero carbon future.
Fusion21 will show where ‘whole life’ and ‘should cost’ modelling have saved organisations money and how supplier expertise can be instrumental in solving complex problems.
Fusion21 is a not-for-profit procurement organisation whose principal aims are to deliver value for money and social value. Using frameworks for property, construction and the built environment the organisation has saved its members over £225 million through the procurement process and generated more than £80 million of social impact.

||Session E3: The Evolving Smart Campus: What's Next?
Smart, digital campuses are a thriving and evolving trend in Higher Education. The question is – how do we make them smarter?
A panel of industry experts will deliver their insights and opinions into the future of:
• Smart Space management: optimising the use of space, timetable / room booking integration and wayfinding systems
• Smart Carbon management: setting out a grand vision and using digital technology to guide the way to a zero-carbon campus
• Smart Asset management: mobilising digital technologies and Building Information Modelling (BIM) to optimise asset performance and minimise life-cycle costs
This live discussion will cover challenges and opportunities, including a real-life example of system integration at a university and how silos are being smashed. We’d like to extend this conversation to the audience and ask: what do you believe the future campus will look like?

||Session E4: The Construction Playbook – What can it offer Higher Education?
Launched in December 2020 The Construction Playbook is at the heart of Governments strategy to build back better, faster and greener.
The result of extensive collaboration from across the public and private sectors the Playbook aims to bring together expertise and best
practices and is applicable to all public projects in England. Focused on getting projects and programmes right from the start many of the principles
and policies will be equally relevant to a project in the HE sector to a school, hospital or major infrastructure project.
This session looks at what the Playbook has to offer the HE sector illustrated with some examples from recent projects including at the
University of Sussex and University of Edinburgh.
