Understanding behaviour is central to managing sustainable buildings

Director Joanna Eley spoke at the 2012 Ecobuild conference in London on Occupant's behaviour and their ability to make the most of buildings' sustainable design capabilities on a panel which focused on ‘Buildings in use.’  Speaking to an audience of architects, engineers, surveyors and others with interest in sustainability and the built environment, this presentation focused on ensuring that users behaviour is understood and included in the management of sustainable places. Joanna commented that awareness raising - bottom-up - approaches are very important, but that as people are very varied in their perception some situations call for top-down action.
