Adventures of a Green Building Field Researcher
Green buildings should be good for the planet and the people in them. Although it is understood that buildings can positively impact human health and comfort, do they really deliver? Prior to 2002, the Faculty of Architecture at the U of MB lacked the tools to undertake field research about in-use building performance. Fast forward to 2017 and the Faculty is well-equipped to undertake state of the art investigations. In this lunch-hour lecture, Dr. Shauna Mallory-Hill provides an overview of her post occupancy green building research over the past decade and highlights the lessons-learned.
Shauna Mallory-Hill, Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Architecture, has more than 25 years of experience teaching and researching building systems, universal and sustainable design, as well as building performance evaluation. A major focus of her research is on how sustainably designed environments impact human health and productivity. Shauna has presented her building evaluation work across Canada, in the USA and Europe, and has been published in several journals and books. One of her latest efforts was co-editing the book Enhancing Building Performance published by Wiley-Blackwell.
Shauna, a LEED Accredited professional in Building & Construction (LEED AP B+C), has served as Director of Education on the Board of Directors for the MB Chapter of the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC MB - 2011-2013). Early in her career she also was Executive Director of the Canadian Institute for Barrier-Free Design. She is currently in her 8th year on the Board of Directors of the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA), as past-chair, having served as Chair in 2014-15.
Shauna holds a PhD in Architecture from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands; a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Environmental Studies from the University of Manitoba.
