Velux shares its vision for a brighter future at Manchester event

Velux has announced the date of its series of Design a Brighter Future breakfast events for construction professionals, with the first one taking take place on 6 June between 8am and 10am at The Castlefield Rooms, Manchester.

Attendees will gain an insight into how VELUX is championing the potential of daylight and ventilation and how it can transform the lives of millions of people across the world.

Velux’s vision is to unite architects, contractors, manufacturers, subcontractors, clients, end-users and policy makers, and all the breakfast events will include high profile speakers from the architectural, academic and built environments – a great opportunity to find out more about how natural light and ventilation can lead to more productive outcomes and better occupant wellbeing.

Keynote speakers at the Manchester event will include:

  • Professor David Strong – honorary professor at the University of Nottingham, School of Architecture and the Built Environment
  • Ged Couser, principal at BDP and president of Manchester Architects
  • Andrew Bissell, director of lighting design at Cundall

Scott Leader, commercial director at Velux Modular Skylights, said: “Our core message is based around sharing knowledge about the benefits of daylight and natural ventilation and how simple, inexpensive design changes can transform outcomes in all sectors from education through to commercial and healthcare.”
