On 14 November 2019, Actiflow is organizing a masterclass for policymakers and municipal officials and other interested parties, who want to know more about wind, the effects on the city, standards and wind studies.
After the masterclass, you have sufficient knowledge to shape or deepen your policy on wind in the city. In addition, you will have tools to be a good discussion partner for architects, developers and consultants. Together we create a comfortable urban environment!
These subjects will be covered:
Wind in the city: How does wind behave around a building and the surrounding environment? What is the effect of high-rise buildings and greenery in the city? How can wind play a role in policy plans and permit procedures? Is it necessary to develop a vision with regard to wind in your municipality? And if so, which aspects should then be addressed? How does wind relate to noise, sunlight, urban heat island and climate resistance?
National standard NEN8100: You will be informed about the norm and the background of this standard including concepts such as wind comfort and wind hazard.
Wind studies: How do you interpret the results of a wind study based on simulations, or a study conducted in the wind tunnel? What are the limitations of both methods? What do the standard images that are presented in a wind study mean? How do you enter into a discussion with developers or architects about this topic?
