    Open Day: 20 years of the BRE Trust

    Open Day: 20 years of the BRE Trust - This event has already finished

    BRE has been owned by the BRE Trust since 1997. In 2017 we celebrate the achievements of the Trust and BRE over that time.


    It is 20 years since BRE came under the ownership of the BRE Trust – the largest UK charity dedicated specifically to research and education in the built environment.  Join us for a celebratory open day of seminars, tours and demonstrations on our Watford site designed to give you a flavour of our past and present.

    Event programme

    Starting at 10am and concluding by 4pm, throughout the day our guests will have the chance to tour some of BRE's world leading faciilties, meet with our experts, explore the latest offerings at the BRE Innovation Park, and to see for the first time our new anechoic chamber and sound transmission suites, which will be officially opened by our VIP guest during this open day.

    Seminar sessions will provide an insight into the research carried out with BRE Trust funding into a number of areas, including the cost to society and the NHS of poor housing in the UK, studies into the way indoor lighting can affect our performance, and more. The outcomes from BRE Trust thematic research programmes, including the BRE Trust Cities Programme will also be covered.

    A free, grab-and-go sandwich lunch service will ensure you get maximum time to visit all of the areas of the site that will be open. 

    Further details will be posted here shortly. Register to attend this free event to receive updated information as it is released.
