BUILT FOR LIVING REPORT

UNDERSTANDING BEHAVIOUR AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT THROUGH ENGINEERING DESIGN

Report from a series of three workshops hosted by the Royal Academy of Engineering, RIBA and Arup.

This report describes the issues and themes raised during a series of three workshops, which explored the relationship between the design of the built environment and human behaviour. Each workshop addressed the three following areas:

• energy, water and waste
• health and wellbeing
• performance and productivity.

The report is published by the Royal Academy of Engineering and has been supported by experts from a range of organisations and disciplines.

The report summarises existing knowledge, articulates the current level of understanding of the .eld and makes recommendations for design practice and for research and development, while suggesting implications for policy.

This report will be of interest to all those concerned with developing built environments and with human behaviour.
