IEN (Gregers) has been invited to the architectural conference archiQ and will be speaking on the topic "High Performance Buildings: Health is Wealth". The main point of the presentation is that while energy efficient buildings have an attractive ROI, the biggest benefit with even shorter payback times comes from creating healthy and conducive building spaces that improve health and wellbeing augmenting productivity and reducing illness. With salaries constituting approximately 80% of the operational cost of office buildings, even a small improvement in human health and productivity will easily justify the extra investment in achieving improved building performance. The other speakers will be speaking on "Resilience & The Smart City of the Future" (Ar David Mizan Hashim, Veritas Design Group), "The Profession is Architecture, The Business is Entrepreneurship" (Dato’ Ar Nafisah Radin, NR Architect), "Introducing Section 17A of the MACC Act" (Jayantha Kumar, MACC / SPRM), and "How Wind Engineering Can Add Value to Your Project" (Masoud Moinfar, Fenestra Malaysia).
The conference, which is organised by the Association of Consulting Architects Malaysia (acam), takes place 9am to 5pm on Saturday 31st October 2020 at Consist College, MRR2, Ampang Hulu Kelang, Kuala Lumpur.
