In addition to her historic buildings expertise Sally has led the practice to achieve an exemplary standard in the design and construction of award winning, environmentally sustainable buildings that respect their context.

Building new structures or converting existing buildings for new rural diversification projects there is a convincing argument for using natural materials such as hemp, straw and wood. Using case studies to show examples of good practice, Sally will touch on the wider global issues affecting the construction industry today such as resource scarcity and will explain how the right material choices can positively impact on your investment.
