VELUX sharing future visions at Manchester event

  • 15 May 2018

VELUX has announced the first of its much anticipated series of ‘Design a Brighter Future’ breakfast events for construction professionals will take place on 6th June.

It will last between 8am and 10am, being held at The Castlefield Rooms, Manchester.

Attendees will see how VELUX is championing the potential of daylight and ventilation and how millions of lived worldwide can be transformed.

Increased levels of daylight and ventilation can increase workplace productivity by up to 10%, promote better learning in classrooms by as much as 8%, and aid recovery and significantly lower the average length of stay of healthcare patients.

VELUX’s vision is to unite architects, contractors, manufacturers, subcontractors, clients, end-users and policy makers, with all breakfast events including high profile speakers from the architectural, academic and built environments.

The breakfast events are designed to showcase how the three principles of energy efficiency, environmental impact and human comfort are setting a new standard for optimising human environments within the healthcare, education and commercial sectors.

Scott Leeder, Commercial Director at VELUX Modular Skylights, said the events would build on its successes from last year, as people gain a better understanding of the benefits of natural daylight and ventilation and how VELUX Modular Skylights have made it easier to incorporate those benefits into commercial buildings.

Scott added: “Our core message is based around sharing knowledge about the benefits of daylight and natural ventilation and how simple, inexpensive design changes can transform outcomes in all sectors from education through to commercial and healthcare.”
