If you are interested in learning more about how to design healthier, more profitable and uplifting environments and at the same time reduce carbon emissions and energy costs, SE3D’s Tomas Gaertner is running a two day course on Building Biology with the Green Register in Brighton on 20th and 27th September.
With the construction industry slowly recognising that good buildings enhance occupants’ physical and mental health while those which are poorly designed can be negative for well being, we are delighted to be offering the UK’s first ever half-day introductory series of training on Building Biology and so support members and other practitioners to deliver healthy living environments.
Building Biology is the holistic study of the interrelationships between humans and their man-made environment. It is the science of creating healthy, life enhancing buildings. The Institute of Building Biology and Sustainability was founded in Germany in 1983 and from this the Building Biology Standard (Standard der Baubiologischen Messtechnik / SBM) was developed. This standard (most recently SBM-2015) gives an overview of the physical, chemical and biological, risks encountered in different parts of a building. It offers guidelines on how to: perform specific measurements for other environmental factors such as indoor air quality; measure and evaluate electromagnetic radiation exposure and assess possible health risks
The seminars will cover the 25 guiding principles established by the IBN in 1977 and updated following the International conference in Rosenheim last week. A particular focus will be on the indoor environment, material specification and services strategies and how they can be tested, monitored and evaluated following completion.
