Tune in to the Constructive Voices Radio Sustainable Solutions Radio Show to hear what your AEC colleagues around the world are doing with a sustainable present and future in mind. Hear news, views and interviews on the scorching subject of sustainability. This promises to be a very exciting show that will also have our Roving Reporters on the ground at the FOOTPRINT+ event in Brighton in early June 2022.
Welcome to this Constructive Voices interview which was originally published in the week leading up to a major event for the future of the planet. The United Nations cop 26 climate change conference will bring together world leaders with the recent IPCC report fresh in their minds. The report warned that urgent action is required to avoid the worst impacts of rising global temperatures. And with the construction industry playing such an important role in reducing carbon emissions and driving sustainability, we’re joined by Darshil Shah, a specialist in natural materials, who says change is essential.
Darshil Shah is a material scientist and lecturer in materials at the Department for Architecture at the University of Cambridge. He also works in the Centre for Natural Material Innovation, where the team looks at a range of different natural materials, particularly timber, bamboo and their engineered composites as well as linen, hemp and their engineered composites as alternatives to materials like concrete, steel, glass and carbon fibre composites for the built environment sector, but also a range of other application sectors. His full university biography is further below.
