This event which is being held as part of Green Sky Thinking Week explores the design, engineering and maintenance requirements of bringing green infrastructure into buildings as a service.
It will include talks by leading experts, as well as announcement of the winners and a showcase of the entries to the Green Infrastructure Design Challenge organised by CIBSE and ARCC.
- Green infrastructure as a building service indoors and out - Emeritus Professor John Dover, Staffordshire University
- Green infrastructure as a wellbeing and productivity service - Emeritus Professor Derek Clements-Croome, University of Reading
- Integrating GI into the architecture and fabric of a building: a new era of environmental design solutions - Professor Marcos Cruz & Dr Brenda Parker, UCL
- Green infrastructure as an air quality service - Curtis Gubb, University of Reading and the Royal Horticultural Society
The Event will run from 10am-12pm and will be followed by a free networking lunch.
CIBSE and ARCC are delighted to once again run the 2017 design challenge on the use of green infrastructure as a building service. Submissions must demonstrate how both indoor and outdoor green infrastructure can contribute to the health, wellbeing and productivity of staff, while simultaneously improving the building’s energy efficiency and climatic resilience. The interaction of indoor plants with heating, cooling, acoustic management, air quality, staff productivity and wellbeing is an exciting and growing area of research: the benefits of green infrastructure don’t need to remain outside the building entrance.
