Tomorrow’s challenges in today’s buildings
It is well known that 80 per cent of the buildings needed for 2050 already exist. But what will be the requirements within these buildings to accommodate the changing and varied expectations of the occupants while not forgetting our energy/carbon targets?
The latest opportunities emerging are focused on health, wellness, independence, mobility and leisure. Products and services that address these needs will have a fast growing market to capture. Building services are at the heart of realising these opportunities and delivering the built environment of the future.
This will not only provide challenges for the workplace but also for communities as a whole, including residential, leisure and retail. How will building services need to adapt to meet the needs of future generations and industries?
Because the coming demographic shifts are foreseeable over the next few decades, governments are afforded the opportunity to adopt a proactive approach to align their policies to the evolving needs.
This year’s Briefing explores the options of how technology and research can enable us to prepare and accommodate future needs both in the residential and commercial buildings of the future.
Other speakers include: Sir Ranulph Fiennes Bt OBE, Tom Wright CBE, Group Chief Executive at Age UK and Age International and Tassos Kougionis, Principal Consultant – Residential at BSRIA’s Sustainable Construction Group. The Chair is Ant Wilson MBE, Director – Sustainability & Advanced Design – Building Engineering at AECOM.
