Event description

Description

Kings Cross, Mott MacDonald, Google

There's a saying that you are what you eat. The same idea applies to architecture. A building is the sum of its parts—framing, insulation, flooring, cladding, windows, carpet, furniture etc. While you can read an ingredient list on most foods and make an informed decision about what you're going to consume or avoid, the same isn't true for architectural products. While innocuous in appearance, they may contain substances that are known to be harmful to human health and as a result air pollution inside a building can be worse than it is outside.

Google recognise this and have developed the Healthy Materials Program, which uses Portico, a material analysis and decision making tool that is used by the whole project team to ensure all materials that are put within the building meet strict criteria to help Google in their mission of delivering healthy buildings for their employee and all of those who interact with Google buildings.

Argent have utilised this tool while delivering several buildings for Google at King’s Cross, including Google’s UK headquarters. This chaired discussion includes speakers from the developers, designers, clients and manufacturers to explore the challenges and successes of utilising the Healthy Materials Program and Portico in delivering buildings that promote healthy and happy employees.
