This Conference and Expo will explore the extent to which careful product selection can have a positive influence on occupant health. The Conference is particularly aimed at architects, designers and product specifiers, but is highly relevant to building clients, policy makers and product suppliers. The event should also appeal to anyone with an interest in the relationship between buildings and human health.
Expert speakers will address urgent occupant health issues such as overheating, moisture and mould, and indoor air quality and explore how building products can exacerbate the problem or provide a solution. For example, new research will be presented that exposes the risks associated with harmful air in our homes and public buildings caused by dangerously high levels of volatile organic compounds.
Building products can have a considerable impact on the health of building occupants as well as on the natural environment and on the people and communities impacted by the manufacturing process. Consequently, sustainable products must be healthy products. This Conference will help delegates to both conceive of and design healthier buildings and to maximise the opportunities of more informed product selection.
