Healthy buildings – a focus on light and indoor air quality


Wednesday 12 May 2021
10:00 - 11:00

In this webinar we present case studies and approaches on how to maximise light and improve indoor air quality to create healthy buildings.
In the past year we have seen wellbeing becoming a top priority. As most of us spent a lot of time indoors, we suddenly became aware of how our indoor environments affect our health. 
Research has highlighted how good lighting can inform our moods and productivity, whilst access to good air quality can radically improve our health. How therefore can these core features become cemented in our building’s design? How can we maximise these features and promote healthy buildings that can sustain wellbeing? 
This webinar will hear from built environment professionals on how to improve wellbeing through design, with a focus on indoor air quality and light.
