Future of Cities Globally and Construction Industry trends - and UK property market trends. Zero carbon homes, offices and infrastructure. Modern Methods of Construction, offsite modular construction, impact of digital tools. Construction Keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of the Construction Industry / Smart Cities

Despite all the real estate booms and busts that we will see in major cities around the world over the next three decades, more than $100 trillion dollars will be added in real terms to the total value of global real estate, from $228 trillion in 2017 to 2035, simply because cities are expanding, economies are growing, and numbers of middle-class property owners are rising. And the COVID pandemic did not alter that trend, despite all the media hype.

Globalised travellers will remain near airport hubs. Beyond the impact of COVID in 2020-2021 onwards, all globalised executives will continue to need to be close to a large international airport, however virtual their teams. This ‘hub effect’ will also be true of high-speed trains. There is simply no substitute for "breathing the same air" when it comes to landing new contracts, or managing complex operations in other nations.

Those who are fed up with city life can afford the luxury of bucking the trend, going ‘back to nature’, getting out of cities for a greener life, greater security, lower costs. However, the wealthiest will just live in both, with two, three, ten or twenty homes. An increasing number of super-wealthy will have private helicopters and planes that link their offices, homes, hotels and holidays direct.

Future of the UK property market - 15 reasons for long term investment returns: UK property prices will be linked to the future of London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow and other major cities. As I predicted many years ago and more recently real estate has remained a good long-term investment, despite the 2008-9 crash for 15 reasons...

Future of the Construction Industry, rush to Net Zero Carbon (NZC), Smart Buildings, Smart Cities, infrastructure, offsite-manufacturing, modular buildings, modern methods of construction, green tech innovation, changes in use after COVID. Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of the Construction Industry / Smart Cities

It’s not enough to create smart buildings that are ultra-efficient to heat or cool.  We also need to focus on how long those buildings will actually last.  My own home was built in 1842 and I expect will still be lived in by the year 2300.  But I don’t know many commercial tower blocks or factories being built today that have a life-expectancy of more than 50 years - and many buildings being demolished today are less than 40 years old.

This really matters, because 30% of the entire energy consumed in the average life cycle of an office tower is the energy consumed in building it, and 10% more can be consumed in demolition.  

We need to see far more life-enhancing, iconic structures that people will love and enjoy using for generations to come. That means regulators, government planners, architects and project owners all working together with longer term vision. As part of this, we will also see rapid growth in repurposing older buildings, refitting their interiors, extending their useful lives.

Secondly, we talk a lot about recycling as being good for the environment. And we will see massive growth in recycling of building waste.  But we can go a lot further. 

The truth is that most recycling in our communities is down-cycling.  For example, plastic drinking bottles converted into lower-grade insulation products.  But closed-cycling is where those same plastic drinking bottles are collected, melted down and recast into new plastic bottles.  

Can we do similar things in construction?  Yes indeed....

Green Cities and Future of Construction: 10 steps to zero carbon real estate - green tech keynote. Smart, net zero carbon construction industry trends

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of the Construction Industry / Smart Cities

How Real Estate will be changed by high cost energy.

Cities are responsible for 75% of global energy consumption and 80% of all greenhouse gas emissions – mostly burnt up in heating or cooling buildings, and things like lighting the streets.

Just 10 simple steps can reduce energy consumption in many cities by at least 30%, using technologies that are proven.

Most of these green tech innovations pay for themselves.

Roof Gardens Impact on Energy Saving - green tech innovation and impact on future of construction industry

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of the Construction Industry / Smart Cities

Roof gardens keep flat roofs cool in Summer – and also help insulate in winter. They require little maintenance and reduce energy bills significantly. 12% of roofs are “green” in Germany already, and Tokyo law requires at least 20% of all new roofs to be “green”. 

Studies on Chicago City Hall after installation showed that roof temperatures fell by up to 30 degrees C on hot summer days and surrounding areas were cooler by 9 degrees C. We know that with every degree less difference between internal and external temperature, the fuel bill can fall by up to 10%.

Polymer Cement - to save 2% global CO2. Green tech innovation and impact on future of construction industry, meeting climate emergency, net zero carbon for new buildings

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of the Construction Industry / Smart Cities

Polymer cement could save more than 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions – but who is talking about it?

Polymer cement is made by adding different materials to cement, to make new kinds of concrete which save huge amounts of energy.

Polymer cement can be produced using 40% less energy per ton than ordinary cement.  In many cases these new concrete polymers are also lighter (less transport costs) and have better insulating properties. A common ingredient is ash from coal-fired power stations.

Heat Pumps - to prevent global warming. Impact on future of the construction industry, net zero carbon emissions in construction, reducing emissions re climate emergency

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of the Construction Industry / Smart Cities

Heat pumps are a very important way for business to save up to 50% of their energy, yet most people have never heard of them and they are hardly used. Pump heat or cold from 1-2 metres underground more cheaply than burning gas, coal or oil or using traditional air conditioners.  We can halve fuel bills in many buildings by using heat pump and pipes into the ground.  70% of new homes in Sweden, 45% in New Zealand and 30% in Switzerland are already heated by heat pumps, saving each household up to half normal fuel bills.  Expect many developed countries to require heat pumps to be used on most new building projects, with new regulations in the next five to ten years.
