This is a list of strategies we can take advantage of from certification credits and optimizing MEP to innovating in ways projects engage with wellness, biophilia, and occupant health.
Materials Selection and Design for Circularity
Support a Circular Economy by reusing and improving buildings and by designing for long life, disassembly and reuse of materials.
Materials Selection for Climate Health
Support Climate Health by preferring products which reduce carbon emissions and ultimately sequester more carbon than emitted.
Life Cycle Assessment
Understand embodied environmental impacts of a product, material, assembly, or an entire project from cradle to grave in a number of clear metrics.
Materials Selection for Ecosystem Health
Support Ecosystem Health by preferring products which support and regenerate the natural air, water, and biological cycles of life through thoughtful supply chain management and restorative company practices.
Materials Selection for Social Health & Equity
Support Social Health & Equity by preferring products from manufacturers who secure human rights in their own operations and in their supply chains, and which provide positive impacts for their workers and the communities where they operate.
Materials Selection for Human Health
Support Human Health by preferring products which support and foster life throughout their life-cycles and seek to eliminate the use of substances that are hazardous.
Understand the carbon footprint of a project, it's materials, and energy needs while pushing to reduce, capture and store it.
Establish strong and clear goals for achieving certifications and guiding principles which can be addresses throughout the project.
Drone Photography and Site Documentation
spot measurements and data logging over a period of time
Provides up to date, high-res aerial imagery that can be scaled and geolocated; create site context model
Space Utilization Evaluation
catalogue spaces, collect data for 1 week, analyze and visualization data
