    BRE set to host free
    Winter Reception

    arrow Back to news 28th January 2016

    The Building Research Establishment (BRE) is hosting its annual winter reception next Monday, designed to bring together some of the brightest talent in the built environment.

    The free event, which is being held at The Ivy, 1-5 West Street, London WC2H 9NQ, welcomes evolutionary biologist and senior visiting research fellow, Andrew Parker, of Green Templeton College, Oxford University.


    Mr Parker will be discussing how professionals working across all facets of the built environment can utilise the brightest colours from nature into the manufactured world using biomimetics: the imitation of models, systems and elements of nature to overcome complex human challenges.


    His fascinating work in biomimetics focuses on the way professionals can utilise the wealth of structural colour or “iridescence” in the diversity of animals and plants for the manufactured world.


    There’s no doubt that we all want to design and create developments that work not only for our people but the planet as a whole too. If you’re interested in the The Building Research Establishment Winter Reception, simply book your place online now or contact Fiona.frost@bre.co.uk.


    At Sunsquare we’re proud to work closely with the BRE to develop innovative ways of improving the built environment. The world-leading building science centre has a mission to improve buildings through research and knowledge generation.


    Last year we were delighted to be selected to join a group of BRE partners and demonstrate our world-leading rooflights at the Watford Innovation Park; the flagship development of the BRE’s global network of innovation parks.


    Our permanent display of flat roof skylights can be viewed near the visitors’ centre of Watford Innovation Park, containing the vast majority of our BSI Kitemarked product range.


    Justin Seldis, managing director, Sunsquare, said: “Everyone at Sunsquare is proud to be part of an amazing wealth of industry knowledge available to professionals and self-builders alike.”

    Lowest U-Values in the skylight industry

    U-values are touted by companies as a selling point for their products. Until now, all skylight U-values are calculated in exactly the same was as a vertical window, which gives a false reading and misleads the client.
