Session Outline

The Net-Works programme evolved from a need to find a better way of doing business. It’s a unique solution, innovating a new source of recycled Nylon-6, which not only helps Interface achieve its sustainability strategy, but also provides support and incentives for some of the poorest people in the world to protect their natural environment. Net-Works illustrates how the triple bottom line can be achieved in practise and its success has been so great, the project is now expanding into Cameroon. An introduction to BIM and its importance to manufacturers within the wider context of the future built environment for education.
