Specifying Sustainability; Protecting People, Planet and Prosperity
This CPD will explore how in recent years design sustainability and the implementing of design features has evolved into a more people-centric approach with places, health, and wellbeing at the core of the design process. Topics discussed include how a building's occupants are directly affected by specific elements within the built environment, Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ), how design should be considered at the beginning to improve the overall experience of the occupants over the lifetime of a building, and different design solutions and their sustainability. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- The effects natural and man-made design elements can have to occupant health, both physically and psychologically
- The different elements of IEQ and the preventative solutions that can be taken to control the source
- How to assess the positive and negative impact on occupant experience and how this can be altered through building design
- The scope of design solutions that can be implemented
- How to assess the sustainability of these design solutions - understanding what green practices can be put in place and how through sustainable solutions we are protecting our resources: people and planet, to ensure a prosperous future
