Over the past 30 years SEDA (The Scottish Ecological Design Association) has been promoting the design of communities, environments, projects, systems, services, materials and products which enhance the quality of life and are not harmful to living species and planetary ecology.SEDA is holding this free online Zoom event to launch ‘Indoor Air Quality in Airtight Homes: A Designer’s Guide ‘ with key lessons in maintaining healthy internal environments in modern low energy homes. The guide was commissioned by Professor, Tim Sharpe, Head of the Architecture Department at Strathclyde University who was a Lead Investigator in the HEMAC Network (Health Effects of Modern Airtight Construction) and has been produced for the HEMAC Network by Chris Morgan and John Gilbert Architects.
The guide is aimed at Architects and other designers, homeowners and those responsible for providing and maintaining homes for others including private landlords, council housing officers, social housing providers and healthcare. This guide describes how to minimise the creation of indoor air pollutants, and effectively ventilate them away, to create fresh and healthy buildings which are warm and comfortable! The event includes:
- Professor Tim Sharpe will discuss the wider context of HEMAC and the various initiatives across the UK to improve ventilation and indoor health.
- Chris Morgan, main author of the guide guide.
- Andy Woodburn, an independent development officer for Govanhill and Cathcart & District Housing Associations will offer a client’s perspective on the need to improve housing for tenants.
