UK PIN are hosting the 7th biennial forum at the Arena Convention Centre in Liverpool. The main reason we are hosting it there is the fact that it is the first time we are using the conference centre and wanted to offer something new, innovative and more comfortable for delegates.
Other factors that played a role include:
- ACC Liverpool has been designed to produce half the CO2 emissions it would without any environmentally-friendly measures, whilst using 20% less electricity – lighting, for instance, is high efficiency and controlled by motion detection.
- The entire ACC building is designed to be inherently efficient, with an insulation and air control system that requires significantly less energy than a traditional build.
- Outside, rainwater is collected on the roof which is used to flush toilets, accounting for about 40% of the water used for flushing toilets in the venue
- Five 20-metre low noise wind turbines on the river side of the venue contribute to our electricity supply
