There is substantial evidence which demonstrates that both the design and the indoor environmental quality of an office impact on the productivity of its occupants.

This seminar is dedicated to the impact of indoor environmental qualities on productivity. LCMB and Oxford Brookes University, together with their Consortium Partners (including the BCO) will discuss their findings on The Whole Life Performance Plus project, a research study supported by Innovate UK and the EPSRC.

The project has produced a productivity guide to help measure and improve workplace performance and productivity. The aim is for the tested solution to then be developed into a software-based platform that can dynamically control the indoor environmental conditions to maximise occupant productivity and comfort conditions, whilst minimising energy use and costs in commercial office environments.

Come and join us on 29th November at Wedlake Bell, London and participate in the thought-provoking debate and discussion.

This event is only available to members of BCO.
