Description

 

The COVID 19 pandemic has accelerated trends and demand for healthier indoor spaces while exposing our need for greater resilience to public health crises. As the building industry this is an opportunity to change how we design and construct buildings that are at once more resilient, safe and healthy for people to live.

 

This presentation will offer the results and analysis from two client surveys completed in 2020 by marketing leading architect and engineering firms. Synthesized alongside new perspectives, best practices, and a innovative vision for incorporating health in building design. Focus will be given to space utilization, ventilation systems and performance strategies for your projects. We will also review existing and emerging green programs in context to health and a comparison of the primary health dedicated certification programs.

Learning Objectives

 

  1. Participants will gain insight into the role and impact building design can have on mitigating the risks of viruses and poor indoor air quality.

  2. Participants will understand which ventilation and MEP engineering systems can be used in building design to enhance IAQ and create a healthier environment for occupants.

  3. Participants will be able to distinguish health strategies and considerations across existing and emerging green programs and new health programs

  4. Participants will learn how other architects and building owners are thinking about health and planning to assess this concern on their next project.​
