BSRIA will be staging its ‘Measuring Occupant Well-being’ event, part of its Residential Network events programme, on Friday September 7.
The event is expected to attract the interest of both public and private stakeholders, initiating a constructive dialogue between the two on how calculating well-being can be addressed.
Many organisations have started to become more concerned and interested in offering an environment that can improve occupants’ well-being.
All descriptions of well-being indicate that it is more than just the “lack of negative situations, such as illness”, but also includes positive features such as happiness. ‘Well’ buildings can support the occupants to thrive and happily achieve their optimum ability.
The event will consider:
- How to embed well-being in the workplace.
- Using building data to predict well-being and productivity.
- Requirements for tracking health and wellbeing in buildings.
- A workshop to develop how this could be managed in the building.
- IoT: enabling a healthy workforce in healthy buildings.
BSRIA will also be launching its new Well-being Network.
June Davis, business manager at BSRIA North, said: “Any measures that mean a workforce performs at its peak performance and generally flourishes is crucial in today’s working environment, both in terms of happiness and the economic output gained therein for any business.
Well-being is the mixture of light, air, space and noise levels to achieve the perfect work environment and optimum output and, indeed, get the right balance to realise this.
This event will address how data and researched facts can deliver well-being and will certainly get the hares running! We urge members and industry to attend to learn more and share their views with fellow guests.”
The ‘Measuring Occupant Well-being’ event will be taking place between 09:30 – 2:30pm at 99 Sir Matt Busby Way, Stretford, Manchester.
