Designing Buildings to Improve Occupant Health
Traditional buildings contain a toxic mix of chemicals that impact and disrupt human health. We now have the ability to dive deep into the chemistry of building products so we can carefully select materials that avoid known carcinogens. In this panel discussion, you’ll hear from leaders in material health who will share their tools and strategies to deliver healthy buildings. You’ll discover how to discover, specify and implement healthy materials that positively affect human health. A healthier built environment can boost student test performance, improve patient recovery outcomes, and reduce employee sick days.
Finally, the event will demonstrate for attendees how to utilize this “outcomes-based” approach to health and wellness to create strategies for their own clients and institutional campuses moving forward. You won’t want to miss it.
