Putting people in the center of your building design will improve business resiliences through climate and social change. Since the pandemic has sparked increasing changes to building design, operation and maintenance, it’s becoming more apparent that existing strategies are not sufficient to provide a healthy working and living environment for building users.
There is a need for greater adaptability and innovation in building design, as well as implementing better management policies in workplaces; from providing ergonomic equipment and good acoustic workspace, to facilities to exercise, eat and take regular breaks. Current expectations extend beyond purely functional space to designs that are flexible, sustainable and healthy.
