Complimentary Breakfast Seminar: Wellbeing in the Built Environment
Breakfast Seminar / Energy Legislation Forum
21 June 2018 , 08:00-11:30
Institute of Directors, Pall Mall, London
Wellbeing is a “buzz word” in management circles that in the last year has risen up the agenda for building owners, designers and occupants.
The property industry has woken up to wellbeing due to advances in technology changing the way we work and the evolving needs of the UK workforce. The next generation of employees, known as Generation Z, are not willing to compromise on health and happiness. So for organisations to attract and retain the best talent, they must be able to provide a healthy and comfortable workplace. The link between wellbeing and productivity has also been well documented providing organisations with a financial case for implementing a wellbeing strategy.
Carbon2018’s forthcoming breakfast seminar will explore how to create an environment to improve occupant wellbeing.
BSRIA’s Dr Michelle Agha-Hossein, Building Sustainability Engineer, will explain what wellbeing means and offer an overview of the functional, physical and psychological factors that can really make a difference. Whilst Joanne Merry, Technical Director at Carbon2018, in conjunction with Peter Dyment, Technical Manager at Camfil, will build on how the management of building services impacts wellbeing – addressing the importance of thermal comfort, air quality and light levels in creating a comfortable environment that allows occupants to perform at optimum levels.
In order to manage wellbeing in a workplace it must be measured. A leading panel of experts will explore the role schemes play in driving the business case for wellbeing in the built environment. Joining the panel will be Dr Christopher Ward, Principal Consultant at BREEAM and Victoria Lockhart, Director of Business Development: Europe at the International WELL Building Institute, providing the opportunity to ask questions, put forward ideas and open the debate about where the built environment is heading in the next few years.
Following the seminar, the Energy Legislation Forum will address the latest updates in energy related legislation providing the opportunity to share ideas and concerns around compliance issues affecting your business. Areas to be covered include:
- ESOS Phase 2
