Standards of wellbeing: WELL, Fitwel or the new BREEAM?

18 January 08:30 - 10:30
Organized by: The Built Environment Trust
26 Store Street

Wellbeing is an increasingly popular concept in the construction industry with numerous certifications and standards being generated to help guide us on the best way to build and design the spaces we live in.

This breakfast talk aims to abate the growing confusion that surrounds these wellbeing building standards and is intended for professionals in the construction industry who are looking to understand:

- What the different wellbeing standards (WELL Building Standard, Fitwel and BREEAM) do

- How to apply the wellbeing standards to the practice

- What the wellbeing standards mean for the future of construction

- What a wellbeing certified project looks like and the long-term impacts

Presentations from experts who have worked with the standards will be given, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A in the hope to demystify these standards and help you work out what is the best thing for you and/or your practice.

Speakers include:

 – Vicki Lockhart, director of buisness development for Europe at International WELL Building Institute (IWBI)

 – Edward Garrod, principal and head of sustainability at MEP Engineers Elementa Consulting, and Europe’s first Fitwel Ambassador

 –  BRE Group (speaker TBC)

 – Elaine Toogood, senior architect with expertise in concrete and sustainability at The Concrete Centre (Chair)

One more speaker to be confirmed...


Registration will open at 8.30am with a light breakfast before the start of the presentations at 9.00am.
