“Practical Guide to Sustainability”
Matthew Edis, BREEAM Assessor/ Low Carbon Consultant and
Bernard Doyle, Principal Architect & Managing Director.
Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important KPI for publicly funded building projects. Many funding streams require compliance with specific performance criteria, such as BREEAM, to qualify for funding which requires upfront investment in consultants and decisions made at early stages affecting the whole design.
This seminar looks at how best to negotiate this process with the understanding that the early project stages will be progressed speculatively with very limited funds until funding is confirmed at a much later stage of the project.
The seminar will provide useful advice and guidance using examples taken from recent education projects of different sizes. The seminar would be suitable for anyone who is considering a project where sustainability is likely to be a key performance indicator, or where the client, or other stakeholders have a specific interest in sustainability.
“Wellbeing in the school estate”
Claire Barton, Partner
This talk will focus on the consideration of young people with SEMH and the need for their environments to consider their wider wellbeing. We will consider pedagogies such as “restorative practice” and what this means for design, together with the greater need for a variety of different therapies around the young people and again how this influences the design of schools and places of learning for young people with SEMH.
