14th September 2021. 10.00-15.00
We are developing a technical framework to enable a new integrated health evidenced approach to urban building design and technology innovation. Theme one of our network, focuses on mechanisms for ingress and egress of pollutants in buildings and the tools and techniques for quantifying this exchange. Theme one leads, Malcolm Cook and Maarten van Reeuwijk are hosting an online workshop to identify how mathematical models are used currently by building stakeholders, to explore stakeholder needs in terms of ventilation and air quality, to explore reality versus modelling and to identify opportunities from emerging technologies.
10.00-12.15. Invited presentations from different stakeholders in this area:
- Welcome and introduction to the FUVN: Cath Noakes, University of Leeds
- Introduction to today’s event: Malcolm Cook, Loughborough University
- Exposure and health: James Stewart-Evans and Christos Halios, Public Health England
- A manufacturer’s perspective: Ana Cross, Elta Fans
- Modelling for Engineering Design: Owen Connick, Hoare Lea
- Using CO2 monitoring for managing indoor air quality: Liora Malki-Epshtein, UCL
- Quantifying indoor exposure to outdoor particles: Simon Parker, DTSL
- Looking to the future: integrating indoor and outdoor environments: Thomas Schroepfer, Singapore University of Technology
12.15-13.00. Break for lunch
13.00-14.00. Breakout groups. Discussion topics to include multiple-stakeholder design; what models do different stakeholders require; what data do we need?; active/passive ventilation; and urban planning
14.00-15.00. Feedback from breakout groups and wrap up.
