Builders’ Breakfast Series: The Buildings that Shape our Lives – Building for the Indoor Generation
We live in an indoor generation where we spend 90% of our time indoors and this is having dramatic effects on our health.
Attendees will learn to define what indoor comfort is and how we can bring it into the home to improve indoor living comfort and health whilst maintaining a high performing building envelope. There will be discussion on how to design with daylight and fresh air through the roof, and better identify and understand why the Canadian consumer is asking for more daylight as one of the first renovations to be done in a home.
Attendees will also learn how skylights integrate into the building envelope and key lessons on how to maximise and increase the longevity of that skylight, and look at how to work with code to make the most of every project.
Key Learning Objectives:
1. Defining what comfort it
2. Comfort Via Top Lighting
3. Ventilation and Efficiency Through the Roof
4. Building Science and Designing to Maximise Performance
