Buildings, Occupants and the Changing Environment

Presenter: Dr. Karen Bartlett, School of Population and Public Health, University of British Columbia

Occupants of buildings depend on what we term “good” Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). The actual definition of IEQ is somewhat elusive, as it is the absence of problems in the indoor environment which could detract from the health and productivity of occupants. Buildings need to be designed and built with the occupant in mind, and as we rapidly progress into sustainable building designs, we also need to make sure that buildings can accommodate the changing environments of our cities and climate. We will explore some of the facets of the occupant/building interface in these changing environments.

Presenter Bio:

Dr. Bartlett is a Professor and Graduate Program Director in the Division of Occupational and Environmental Health in the School of Population and Public Health, UBC. She was a co-director of the NSERC-CREATE grant, “Sustainable Building Sciences Program” and has supervised a number of graduate research students studying building sciences. The CREATE grants emphasized interdisciplinary research, and she has collaborated with mechanical and civil engineers, architects, and physicists on the design of buildings for a sustainable future. The focus of this presentation will be the indoor environmental quality of sustainable buildings.
