ASHRAE UK Midlands and CIBSE Yorkshire Joint Event

The evening entitled “Commercial Buildings; Redefining Performance In-Use” included two speakers, Ian Ellison, a partner at 3edges, and Edward Murphy, founder of Ollio, on the hot topic of the building performance gap. Approaching the problem from very different directions, they have both arrived at similar views in suggesting the solutions lie outside of architects and designers normal fields of view.
