Valuing & Implementing Health and Wellbeing in the Built Environment
Opening Keynote 9:30 - 10:15, Astor Suite
Oliver Heath will investigate how we create happier, healthier buildings and the value that improved physical and mental wellbeing delivers to occupants, business and building owners alike.
Citing cutting edge research and recent projects Oliver will explain the routes to healthy buildings including new building standards and the emerging science of Biophilic Design - how we improve the human connection to nature in the many buildings that are so important to our lives.
Through this evidence-based system he will explain how we can implement green infrastructure at a range of financial levels, and the value it brings to the urban environment; from cities, to streets, building and interiors.
Join Oliver to find out why designing for human wellbeing is more than just a "nice to have” feature, but an essential element for a future facing sustainable built environment, with lower running costs and improved outcomes for all.
