Building on feedback from the EAUC, numerous building performance evaluations (BPEs) and interviews with HE Environment and Sustainability Managers, AHR’s R&D Group will host an advanced level workshop to discuss some of the most common issues encountered on higher education projects with regard to building performance.

With many of the results finalised AHR, along with professional bodies and Innovate UK, is looking to establish how solutions that were successfully deployed on selected projects could be applied to higher education portfolios and ascertain what is required to implement these.
