The Importance of Healthy Buildings
The built environment industry has rapidly evolved with a focus on environmental sustainability, but so too has our understanding of both the impact and opportunities our physical environment plays on the state of our health.
Buildings are no longer a static asset to provide basic human needs of shelter, safety, light and ventilation, but can form places which not only aid in the absence of mental and physical health issues, but facilitate improved health and advance key wellness attributes through design and operational interventions.
At NDY we nurture the relationship between people and planetary health, striking not only a balance, but improved outcomes in social and environmental sustainability. In today’s market buildings must be more than just energy efficient.
Similar to NDY’s approach toward data-driven design, we also place a huge emphasis on humancentric design. We collaborate to intertwine and deliver complimentary sustainability objectives which are environmentally responsive, people focused and resilient. Our model values whole-of-project life imperatives to create efficient, affordable and healthy buildings.
