Design For Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) In The Built Environment

Design for Healthy Spaces 

An integrated design process that includes the fundamental elements of IEQ brings occupant health and well-being to the forefront.

Healthy Spaces Ecosystem


The design of our built environment affects our health and well-being every day. Throughout our lifespan, building design impacts our quality of life as each space we inhabit evokes feelings - such as rejuvenating energy, instilling calm, or promoting health and healing. Indoor Environmental Quality considerations provide the opportunity to take design to the next level. Architects and designers can bring a more health-informed aspect to their projects through biophilic design, improving air quality, and acoustic and lighting strategies.
