UKGBC Local Networks: Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester

UKGBC is committed to quarterly events in (each of) Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester, working with our members in those cities to support thriving UKGBC local networks and develop an engagement model that can be expanded across the UK.

In our “Ambitions for 2027” strategy we committed to “develop and maintain active UKGBC networks in every region”. Our 2018-19 plan provided the foundation for this ambition. This represents a major strategic development for UKGBC, and is designed to reinforce and support a number of long-term objectives:

  • Raise awareness of sustainability amongst all built environment professionals
  • Grow our membership to be fully representative of the entire built environment sector
  • Deepen and strengthen our members’ engagement with UKGBC activities
  • Strengthening the relationship between industry and local government
  • Driving stretching sustainability standards and best practice in cities and on major projects

Events and activities in Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester are a mixture of core UKGBC content (policy, research, education) accessible locally, and locally driven content specific to the given city-region. All events appear on the central UKGBC events page.

To support this plan, we have appointed part-time Local Network Coordinators in each city-region, thanks to the generous support of members Chetwoods, Hilson Moran and WSP who have seconded locally-based staff. This means, for the first time, UKGBC has dedicated capacity outside London.
