How do we design, build, maintain and deconstruct places that are healthy for the people using them and the surrounding ecosystems?
The building industry is under pressure to find and implement innovative design solutions. However, associated academic programs have lagged behind the demand for livable spaces and ‘green’ buildings.
The Sustainable Building Science Program (SBSP) fills this gap by creating an environment for professional training and innovative research that is applied to the design, creation, operation and monitoring of buildings that promote health, occupant satisfaction, have a low ecological footprint, and that must exist in the larger context of the community.
You are invited to the SBSP Industry Event to be held on Monday, March 2, 2015 in CIRS at UBC.
The purpose of this event is to bring together students, faculty members, industry professionals and staff who are interested in sustainable buildings and sustainable building science. The event is sponsored by the NSERC CREATE Sustainable Building Science Program (SBSP) at UBC, and hosted at the Center for Interactive Research on Sustainability (CIRS). Our event will also showcase the research that has been done in this field at UBC and BCIT.

Hope to see you there!
Event: Objective and Subjective Indoor Environmental Air Quality in Health- Authority Office Facilities
Drs. Bartlett and Hodgson
This seminar discusses a current study which assessed indoor-environmental (air, lighting, thermal, acoustical and ventilation) quality in 17 offices belonging to two local health authorities. The results were compared to design criteria to evaluate their acceptability. Physical results were examined according to the orientation and location of the spaces in the buildings, and to various design features such as office type (e.g., open plan vs private office).
