BSRIA has announced that it will be fielding an expert speaker at the Building Services Forum on Thursday February 8 2018 at the The Building Centre in London.
BSRIA’s Dr Michelle Agha-Hossein, building sustainability engineer, will be making a presentation which focuses on how a building can be measured for ‘wellness’ and its impact on the well-being of the occupants.
Dr Agha-Hossein commented: “BSRIA is delighted to support the inaugural Building Services Forum. As one of BSRIA’s four core values, being innovative is vital to a forward thinking industry and we would encourage building services professionals to attend this event to pick up some of the latest building services thinking.
“Well-being is a very comprehensive term and goes beyond health and comfort. Looking to the future, being compliant is no longer enough; we need to create an environment which has a positive impact.
“It is generally acknowledged that building environments have a direct impact on the occupants’ well-being. ‘Well’ buildings support occupants to thrive and happily perform to their optimum ability. Although this is not a new concept, until recently this was not translated into practice. Many organisations are now interested to know how they can create an environment that can improve occupants’ well-being.”
Event manager, Jacqui Henderson, said: “This new event will give access to an unrivalled pool of expert knowledge with the opportunity to ask questions, put forward ideas and open the debate about where building services are going in the next few years.”
A hub of ideas, debates and thinking at the forefront of the industry, the Building Services Forum is aimed at building services specifiers, installers, engineers, facilities management, designers and architects.
Offering a comprehensive, CPD accredited seminar programme and table-top stands from leading manufacturers, the forum is perfect setting for networking with the industry.
This ticketed, one-day event will include breakfast and lunch.
