How to close the performance gap – exemplar elements for comfortable low carbon environments
Time: 14:00 - 15:00
Date: Week 6: 6-10 July
There is a growing awareness of a performance gap, between the way learning spaces are designed to work and how they actually function.
With a changing climate, the gap is in danger of increasing and so the need to close this gap is now urgent. And we need to do this whilst avoiding mechanical, carbon hungry solutions.
To understand what works, we will be sharing some real examples of key characteristics that have been identified in the best performing school environments. These suggest a number of solutions, that could be incorporated into both new build and retro-fitted to existing schools to help ensure all spaces are comfortable, to support learning and reduce their carbon footprint.
