With Alan Fogarty, Cundall
The goal of Zero Carbon 2050 requires that the energy used by buildings in operation must be reduced to the minimum and where possible any demand be met through renewable energy.
But how will this be achieved and what are the implications for the design and management of the workplace? This session addresses how the workplace can be designed to facilitate reduced energy use, specifically relating to the fundamental requirements of comfortable temperature, high air quality, lighting and the need to power office equipment.
Alan Fogarty is a Partner in Cundall and heads up their specialist environmental building physics group. He is a chartered Building Services Engineer who has specialised in passive building design and low carbon systems.
He is chair of the UK’s MHCLG 2020 Part L Non Domestic working group, looking at proposals for revising Building Regulations in order to meet challenging carbon reduction standards.
Alan also led the implementation of the WELL Building Standard for Cundall’s London office fit out, the first certified WELL project in Europe and offers health and wellbeing consultancy to clients on multiple projects.
He is leading on the implementation of the new Design for Performance on a number of projects which optimises energy performance in use against design targets, using a digital twin.
