Buildings, Health, and Human Performance: Driving Research into Practice

Buildings, Health, and Human Performance: Driving Research into Practice


January 2021

The health and wellbeing of the workplace is a top priority. Take a deeper dive into the interconnections between buildings and health during this timely case study from the Harvard University. Their Healthier Materials Academy examined indoor air quality,  chemicals of concern in building materials,  biophilia and other aspects of the built environment,  and partnered with Google and other companies to drive market transformation. They used the 27 sq ft campus as a testbed to pilot and scale new solutions to address climate change and health. The results of the research led to practical,  actionable solutions and an evolution of KPI’s to HPI’s (Health Performance Indicators).
