Experiencing the pandemic increased our awareness for the need of commercial buildings to provide both safe and inviting indoor environments. It is critical to understand what owners and tenants are looking for in the design of their spaces. This course will explore a range of client perspectives on how to create better built environments, not only for new construction but also for renovation and retrofit projects. This presentation will provide short- and long-term strategies that tenants and owners are considering for designing and operating facilities that contribute to long-term occupant health and well-being.
- Explain the key elements of indoor environmental quality from a building owner’s perspective.
- Explore design tactics that can attract workers back to office settings and provide reassurance that occupant health and safety are being addressed on an ongoing basis.
- Illustrate how interior design can positively impact ongoing building operations and maintenance to enhance human health and wellness.
- Recognize how building products and systems can enhance overall worker engagement, collaboration and productivity.
