Five Principles to Delivering Healthy Buildings in Humid Climates

Abstract

"Health is the new Green" for our homes and buildings. Our clients will spend most of their lives immersed in the indoor air we create for them, with obvious impacts to their health. Design and construction teams need a concrete approach to delivering indoor health, comfort and well-being. This seminar will break this complex and daunting topic down into 5 clear, actionable “Healthy Building” rules that will guide design and decision-making through a project’s lifecycle.
