In the coming weeks, 5th Studio director Oliver Smith will be running two seminars on approaches to heritage and sustainability. Building on 5th Studio’s previous work with Cambridge Colleges, such as the refurbishment of New Court at Trinity College, Cambridge, and the work on the Wolfson Flats at Churchill College Cambridge, the talks will focus on how owners of historic estates can reduce their energy consumption and carbon emissions.

The times and locations of the two talks are as follows:

Tuesday 17 January 2017, 10:00 - 11:30am
UCL, Mary Ward House, 5-7 Tavistock Place, London, WC1H 9SN

Friday 3 February 2017, 10:00 - 13:00pm
