Meeting the growing need for healthier place-making is already requiring fresh approaches to the provision of green infrastructure. From concept and design right through to installation and maintenance, there are unique and complex challenges to overcome. Are you fully prepared for these practical and technical challenges?
Delegates to Healthy Places, Healthy Design will walk away with:
- The technical knowledge needed to show greening can be handled in a low maintenance way, allowing designs to be approved more easily.
- Presentable, innovative and trending ideas to put "green" into the fabric and infrastructure of buildings - winning over clients
- A better understanding of how to pitch designs or products by hearing first-hand from leading clients, such as Argent LLP and Lendlease on the challenges they need to solve
- The knowledge you need to show clients how your product or design can solve their planning challenges such as wind mitigation, air quality, thermal insulation, lost habitat
- The evidence to present a stronger case for greening including the latest thinking from the BRE’s biophilic office project
The Healthy Design, Healthy Places conference takes place at 15Hatfields, London and is the result of a special collaboration between Horticulture Week, World Architecture News and Planning for Housing and is chaired by London Legacy Development Corporation executive director of park and venues, Mark Camley
