Schools and Ventilation

1:00pm on Wednesday 20th July 2022
As part of our ongoing series of webinars related to our Study Day, Net Zero Carbon – Building Resilience Hershil Patel, DfE and Henry Burridge, Imperial College will be presenting on Schools and Ventilation. This session will be hosted by Steve Rufus, Vice-President and Head of Profession, Engineering, of SPACES.

Hershil Patel, is an Engineer and Head of Energy at the Department for Education. His role is to address the climate change in the educational estates through reducing actual carbon emission in the educational estate and assessing the long term impact of climate change in the estate.

Henry Burridge is a Senior Lecturer in the Fluid Mechanics section in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London. Henry co-leads the Low-Energy Ventilation Network which was funded by the EPSRC via the UK Fluids Network as a Special Interest Group, is a Co-Investigator for the Tackling Air Pollution At Schools (TAPAS) network and the Future Urban Ventilation Network (FUVN): the Breathing City (both funded under the NERC funded SPF Clean Air Programme). In response to the pandemic, he was ventilation lead within Task 7 of the Royal Society’s ‘Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP)’ and is the ventilation lead for the COVID-19 National Core Studies (NCS) programme PROTECT funded by the HSE to manage transmission in workplaces.

He is a Co-Investigator on the EPSRC funded project CO-TRACE investigating COVID-19 transmission in schools and he led the formation of CoSchools in order to ensure long-term benefits for staff and pupils from investments driven by the desire to reduce COVID transmission in schools. Henry is joint Principal-Investigator of the Department for Education’s pilot project investigating the ‘Changes In the Ventilation Of Schools when monitoring CO2 (CIVOS-CO2)’ which has received funding from the Department of Health and Social Care.

Henry is Principal-Investigator of the SAMHE (Sammy) ‘School Air quality Monitoring for Health and Education’ project which seeks to establish air quality monitoring in around 2,000 UK schools via teacher and pupil engagement. He was an invited author on the SAGE EMG paper ‘Role of ventilation in controlling SARS-CoV-2 transmission’ and the SAGE EMG & SPI-B paper ‘Application of CO2 monitoring as an approach to managing ventilation to mitigate SARS-CoV-2 transmission’.
