About the Project
This study will simultaneously monitor indoor and outdoor AQ and environmental parameters in three housing typologies: detached, semi-detached, and apartments; segmented into poorly designed and newly designed homes under different climate conditions. Effect of ventilation and indoor activities/sources on AQ will be investigated. Your Homes Newcastle have agreed to provide access to social housing and private renting in houses using the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) calculated for Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs). BuroHappold expertise in Smart Homes will help in developing adaptive building designs for a range of climate change scenarios in the North East. This investigation will use a novel mixed-method design following a path dependency approach, borrowing and developing on methodologies from epidemiology and environmental engineering sciences and applying it to the built environment discipline. Training and support will additionally include the use of relevant indoor and outdoor AQ monitoring equipment, data analytics including advanced statistical techniques, and AQ modelling techniques to investigate the complex relationship between climate change, IAQ, built environment and health.
