Join our online Building4Wellbeing network event to learn more about the issues around building fabric and occupant wellbeing.
Buildings should provide occupants with a safe, comfortable, and healthy place in which they can be successful, productive, and happy. Building fabric plays a vital role in creating the conditions that are required to optimise occupant wellbeing.
Building fabric can affect not only the energy performance of a building but also its indoor environmental conditions. A holistic approach is required when designing building fabric. For example, a well-insulated building can reduce heating demand and maintain a consistent indoor air temperature; however, without an appropriate ventilation strategy, it can cause thermal discomfort for occupants.
To learn more from our expert speakers, we urge you to register for this event today.
