13: The One and Only National Green Specification - an Encyclopaedia of Information for Construction Professionals

Brian Murphy, Green Register core trainer, founder and developer of the National Green Specification is creating a new website: The Encyclopaedia of Green Construction that is uniquely structured to perform like the neural networks of a human brain.  

Brian is seeking funding from the Technology Strategy Board to carry out R&D 'Smart Funding' market research for development of a new interface application that interrogates the Encyclopaedia as the user interacts with a 3D building model.

This bite-size session will be a chance to discover the scope of the Encyclopaedia, experience the novel structure and influence the 3D development.
