Eco-friendly Building Advice

At Build It Live you can gain invaluable FREE advice on all things sustainability. From face-to-face consultations with environmental experts, to tailored workshop sessions from industry figures, our shows are dedicated to bringing you alternative methods of building.

At Build It Live visitors can book a one-to-one meeting with Build It’s eco-expert, Nigel Griffiths, a consultant working mainly on energy efficiency policy and evaluation. Nigel is also the author of the Haynes Eco House Manual and the director of the Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance, a collaborative not-for-profit organisation, acting as a council for sustaining and improving traditional buildings in the UK. His focus is on high-quality research, education and policy development.

Nigel will be available through the weekend at all of our shows, to discuss all aspects of sustainability, from renewable energy to environmentally friendly building techniques. Bring your house plans, designs or ideas along and Nigel will share his wealth of knowledge with you.

Make sure you head to the Ask Our Experts lounge early to book your slot with Nigel as these sessions book up quickly!
