AJ to host ‘Mind the Gap’ breakfast seminar on 18 April
Jointly with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, the AJ will host an eco-breakfast on the building performance gap, chaired by the AJ’s sustainabilty editor Hattie Hartman.
Speakers will include:
- Sarah Cary, British Land
- Ben Humphries, Architype
- Judit Kimpian, Aedas
- Fionn Stevenson, Sheffield University School of Architecture

The panel will brainstorm practical ways to move the post-occupancy agenda forward:
- Monitoring techniques: what are they and who does them?
- What’s the price tag and who pays?
- Developing inhouse expertise on simple monitoring and occupant survey techniques
- How to persuade clients of the merits of monitoring
- Examples of cost and energy savings achieved by monitoring
- Writing monitoring into the brief from the outset
The seminar will take place at FCBStudio’s London office on April 18 at 8am.
