As promised and following on from my previous post on the WELL Building Standard last week it has been easy to follow it with one dedicated to Soft Landings.
BSRIA is now running a new training course on Occupants Satisfaction, building on the previous one on Energy Analysis.
It should be of interest to designers, clients and advisors, contractors, sustainability consultants, FM and project managers.
We quite often get so engrossed on the design and construction process that we run the risk of forgetting the building will be there for many more years after our involvement finishes (which as Soft Landings indicates should be well beyond practical completion!)
In Soft Landings, the project team is required to consider occupant needs and expectations from an early stage in order to inform the client’s requirements, and to ensure that the design brief and output specification are aligned to deliver good operational outcomes from end-users’ perspectives. The course will cover the various components of occupant satisfaction - physiological, behavioural and functional - and how the project teams can manage the trade-offs between them to arrive at a healthy and productive internal environment.
