I was awarded best non-domestic paper by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) for this paper entitled ‘A Case Study of BIT-Kit: A Method Uncovering the Impact buildings have on People’ which she presented on 4th March 2014 at ‘EcoBuild 2014’, ExCeL, London. The Ecobuild conference is a distillation of what is driving sector growth: what’s new, interesting and inspiring in construction. They look at growth in the industry short and long term, bringing in provocative, educational and inspirational speakers that will inspire manufacturers, designers, developers, housebuilders and contractors. The conference embodies the finest practice and thinking in the trade and is the de facto barometer of industry development. As part of Ecobuild 2014, the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and UBM Built Environment partnered and launched a research programme focussed on investigating a growing theme in building science – ‘the impact of the built environment on wellbeing’. This included a competition to find the best recent research into wellbeing. Dr Lesley McIntyre submitted a paper entitled: ‘A Case Study of BIT-Kit: A Method Uncovering the Impact Buildings have on People’, which was awarded best non-domestic paper. This established a new relationship with the Building Research Institute. BRE release a press release and the vent was covered by Facilities Management Journal, Building4Change, The full paper was then published by the Facilities Management Journal Website.
