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.
This will be a fantastic chance to find out more about how natural light and ventilation can produce more productive outcomes and better occupant wellbeing.
Keynote speakers at the Manchester event include Professor David Strong, Honorary Professor at the University of Nottingham, School of Architecture and the Built Environment, Ged Couser, Principal at BDP and President of Manchester Architects, and Andrew Bissell, Director of Lighting Design at Cundall
Each speaker will share their vision of how natural light and ventilation can transform lives in the built environment.
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.”
