Following the success of this year’s opening event in Manchester, VELUX has announced that it will be taking its Design a Brighter Future Breakfast Event to Cardiff and London this July.
The events will see various high profile speakers will discuss how daylight and ventilation can transform the lives of millions of people across the world. They will take place on 4th July at Principality Stadium, Cardiff, and 12th July at Glazier’s Hall, London.
Having made a great impact on attendees at the Manchester event, Honorary Professor at the University of Nottingham, School of Architecture & the Built Environment, David Strong will present as Keynote Speaker in both Cardiff and London. His presentation will cover daylight’s varying impacts in healthcare, commercial, and education sectors, the legislative conditions for applying daylight standards and the future of ensuring adequate daylight conditions in buildings with climate-based daylight modelling and other initiatives.
Joining Professor Strong in London will be Dr. Richard Hobday, Independent researcher and author on the impacts of sunlight and daylight on human health, and Chris Wilkins, Associate Director at Pentan Architects and Emily King, Preconstruction Manager at Portakabin will joining him in Cardiff.
Through the events, VELUX is aiming to reiterate the importance of natural daylight and ventilation in the workplace, classroom and for healthcare patients.
Scott Leeder, Commercial Director at VELUX Modular Skylights, said: “Our first Design a Brighter Future breakfast event in Manchester was a great success, with more than 40 people in attendance. The feedback we received was extremely positive, with many audience members stating that they are now more likely to incorporate daylight and natural ventilation into their designs. As a result, we are taking the Breakfast Events on the road in a bid to reach more people within the construction industry and share with them the benefits of natural light and ventilation in buildings.”
The Cardiff and London breakfast events are a series that VELUX will be hosting across the UK in 2018 to showcase how the three principles of energy efficiency, environmental impact and human comfort are being used to set a new standard for optimising human environments within the healthcare, education and commercial sectors.
