From 1-12 November 2021, the UK – with the support of Italy – will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
As part of this event, a zero carbon, timber frame house – the ‘COP26 House’ – will be built by Beyond Zero Homes near to the conference site in central Glasgow. The house will showcase zero carbon building – and living. After COP26, the house will be dismantled and rebuilt at a site near Aviemore as one of a development of 12 affordable timber houses.
The COP26 House is being constructed in central Glasgow for the UN Climate Change Conference being held in Glasgow 1-12 November. It is located on a site owned by Scottish Enterprise, on the Broomielaw, to the East of the Kingston Bridge, a short walk from both the Scottish Event Centre (SEC) – the main COP26 conference venue – and Glasgow Central Station.
