Healthy Buildings - Improving the Performance of People & Property

Right now, there is a lot of talk about new ways of working, workplace experience and around company culture. Especially in terms of using offices in a post-pandemic era. But there are also new questions emerging around health and the air that we breathe. How do healthy buildings add value to the workplace?

In this webcast you'll get a quick recap of how the topic of indoor air quality and healthy buildings have developed over many decades, all the way from the energy crisis of the 70's, to sick building syndromes, to the present day with threats of airborne viruses, pollution and energy efficiency measure to combat climate change.

Pontus Kihlman interviews Ben Hext to discuss the following questions:

  • What are healthy buildings, in a broader sense than just indoor air, and what benefits are there?

  • Why are healthy (and energy efficient) buildings getting so much attention now?

  • How has Covid-19 changed the focus of tenants, building owners and building users?

  • What have been the barriers for change in the past, and at present?

  • Based on the Verdantix study, what are the top 5 priorities for real estate execs now?

  • What can real estate execs do next?
