Overview

Wellbeing is undoubtedly the current leading trend in the UK’s construction industry.
How can we design and maintain buildings that improve occupants’ wellbeing and productivity?
BSRIA is delighted to stage the third ‘Building 4 Wellbeing’ event where building owners/ operators and other professionals in the construction industry will get together to share knowledge and learn about wellbeing-related topics.

This event will focus on the importance of designing, monitoring and maintaining buildings with the occupants’ wellbeing in mind. We will show how to quantify the different wellbeing parameters, such as IAQ and thermal comfort. We will also study the relationship between a better working environment and improved performance through real case studies.

The event offers excellent networking opportunities with your peers, potential clients and competitiors.
