The HCA, with the ARCC Network, will be hosting a workshop on overheating and indoor air quality in Peterborough on 23 June.
The HCA, working with the Adaptation and Resilience in the Context of Change Network, will host a free, one day workshop for affordable housing providers and developers on how to avoid overheating and poor indoor air quality in new homes.
The event will cover:
- overheating – what it is, the causes and the scale of the problem across social housing stock
- impacts – particularly on health, including a focus on the relationship between overheating and poor indoor air quality
- why overheating should be tackled – environmental health, corporate and social responsibilities, legal duties of care
- how overheating can be tackled across an organisation – what the development, asset management and housing teams can do
- case study examples – drawn from procurement, contractors, asset management, maintenance and resident management
The event is aimed at professionals involved in the commissioning, development and delivery of new affordable homes, including:
- registered providers (development and asset management directors and managers, design managers, technical managers, possibly also directors of housing)
- technical specialists (house builders and contractors, architects, building and services engineers etc)
- local housing authorities (stock owning authorities, particularly those with new-build programmes; housing and environmental health departments)
