BSRIA launches Living Laboratory Innovation Challenge

Reflecting its vision to create greener, smarter and more comfortable indoor environments, BSRIA is offering organisations the chance to utilise one of two floors of its head office space to design, install and commission an exemplar HVAC and lighting system, with the in-use performance monitored and displayed in real-time.

Interested parties should submit an outline of their proposed solution by Friday 29th March 2024. Once commissioned, BSRIA will then provide real-time in-use monitoring of the systems’ performance – including air quality, light levels and thermal comfort – with live reporting hosted on the BSRIA website. The case study can then be used by the stakeholders to promote their solution as a showcase for innovative and effective retrofit methods that support decarbonisation and good indoor environmental quality.

Proposed designs should prioritise sustainable innovation, with the inclusion of biophilic design encouraged, as well as comfort, productivity and integration with smart technologies. Meanwhile the solution should be cost-effective, taking maintenance and energy consumption into account.

“We are excited to invite stakeholders to submit an expression of interest in our Living Laboratory Innovation Challenge,” commented Tom Garrigan, technical director at BSRIA. “It is a unique opportunity to collaborate on the development of a truly cutting-edge office environment, whilst establishing in-use performance metrics and occupant behavioural patterns over an extended period of time, which will provide valuable insights for stakeholders in future retrofit projects.”
