Ian Ritchie will be giving the keynote talk on glass futures at the publication launch of The Pilkington Study on 29th November at the Goldsmith Centre London.
It is based on a survey conducted by Coleman Parkes Research into the future use of glass by architects and specifiers. It also reveals the optimism/pessimism of the Brexit vote upon their future workload.
Attendance by invitation only.
In the summary, Ian Ritchie stated: “While it’s encouraging to see the confidence among architects and specifiers, it’s important to remember that they are not in a position to drive the industry forward when the economy is somewhat stalled. That role falls to those who fund projects. Having said that, the positive plans that are in place for investment in R&D are reassuring to see, as this will be crucial in making the technical advances and developments that will deliver the next generation of buildings.”
