2018 Active House seminar – Can buildings create value through values?

Date: 23 February 2018 Location: Batibouw, Belgium

Attractive buildings are buildings in which people feel good; if people are comfortable they work better, learn more, sleep well, have less sick days and increase productivity.

An appreciated building is valuable, common knowledge. But when it comes to expressing this value, demanding it, programming it, documenting it, what are the tools, the terminology and general understanding of how to express the values which add up to a value?

The Active House Alliance dedicated its seminar held during the Batibouw building exhibition in Brussels, to focus on the topic, and members presented state of the art tools, solutions, and approaches readily in the market.
