How to do WELL with IES

  • The Building Centre 26 Store Street London, England, WC1E 7BT United Kingdom

We'll take a closer look at the application of the virtual environment for designing for health and wellbeing, with a particular focus on the WELL Building Standard™.

Joined by Lindsey Malcolm of XCO2 Energy, he will provide insight into his experiences in modelling and simulation for compliance with the WELL Standard and discuss how software tools can assist in enabling and embedding good practice health and wellbeing concepts into projects. Health and wellbeing is the new frontier for making buildings even better.

Academic research and business case studies have arisen over the last five years showing the health and wellness benefits of positive interactions between humans and the built environment. Using building simulation allows you to quantify, analyse and evaluate design options and their impact on occupants. Attendees will learn how to use the virtual environment to model core health and wellbeing concepts and demonstrate compliance with the WELL Standard.
