This webinar is more intensely focused on design and engineering solutions (and product specification) to marry thermal performance with good IAQ in different building types – both new build and refurb projects – from public, retail and commercial, to domestic (multi-occupancy/high-rise dwellings and individual properties).

Justin Bere – Justin Bere Architects
Will Kirkman – Ecomerchant
This session will assess a range of health risks associated with poor indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation – so, looking at everything from testing and monitoring for such as mould and radon, problems with off-gassing and toxic VOCs in furniture, fabrics and paints, etc, plus threat of Legionella in HVAC and finally implications of COVID-19 and potential future resilience to airborne pandemics
