Health and wellbeing should be a top priority in your technology-rich capital projects – the evidence of positive impacts on user experience and human heath are now conclusive. Session leaders examine a variety of planning, design, and operational strategies that positively impact users including architectural and landscape design, adjacencies of critical program elements, and decisions on lighting, acoustics, and wayfinding. They detail how engineering systems have a measurable impact on occupants’ alertness and ability to concentrate and effect long-term health, and they examine operational and maintenance protocols, first- and ongoing-cost implications of various certification frameworks, and the long-term value of human-centric design.
