It is a well-established fact that indoor air quality, lighting and acoustic attenuation play a vital role in supporting health and wellbeing at home and in the workplace. But how do we provide comfort for occupants while balancing environmental concerns? Furthermore, how do we make better use of the opportunities to maximise the performance of indoor environments while meeting ever more stringent carbon targets? Our panel of expert speakers comprises:

Alina White, Associate, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, who will be discussing the Three Chamberlain Square office building project within the Birmingham Paradise development, designed post-Covid with a particular emphasis on daylight and natural ventilation with an ‘inside/outside’ approach.

Nick Cramp, Senior Partner and Light+Air Leader, Max Fordham, who will be discussing the practice’s holistic approach to developing innovative and creative ventilation and lighting designs to deliver environmental engineering solutions that benefit clients and occupants as well as meet carbon targets.

Dr Shaun Fitzgerald OBE, Director, Centre for Climate Repair at Cambridge and founder of Breathing Buildings, who will be exploring approaches to hybrid and natural ventilation solutions in buildings. Dr Fitzgerald was called upon in Spring 2020 to help with the SAGE Environmental Modelling Group and he co-authored the CIBSE Emerging from Lockdown guidance, which included advice on ventilation in buildings.

key issues up for discussion include:

  • How can we adopt a joined-up approach to designing buildings which provide good ventilation and avoid overheating?
  • What strategies can we employ to design for complementary daylighting and artificial lighting?
  • How can we reduce ambient noise at home and in the workplace?
  • What robust, low-cost ventilation options are available to specifiers?
