There is little dispute that good daylighting, ventilation and acoustic environments have a significant impact on the teaching and learning of pupils and teachers. The DfE Output Specification has specific requirements for the design of the internal environmental conditions of all spaces with specific annexes for mechanical services and public health engineering and daylight and electric lighting. Come and join us for our first ECN breakfast of 2020 as we discuss the merits of these documents:

  • What evidence and research are the specifications based on?

  • How significant is there impact over time sitting in a specific position during the course of a lesson or entire day?

  • Have they become over complicated?

  • How practical is it to assume that natural ventilation is viable given the issues around pollution and acoustics?

  • Is the drive to modular and off-site solutions improving design and compliance?
