The health and productivity benefits of Green buildings are becoming increasingly well understood, particularly in light of The CogFx Study, which demonstrated the impact of Green buildings and enhanced ventilation on cognitive function. This presentation takes these findings from the lab to the real-world. 10 buildings from around the U.S. were recruited to participate in a week-long building assessment survey. In each building, 12 participants completed daily health surveys and cognitive tests. We will highlight the elements of building design, operation and maintenance in green certified and non-certified buildings that result in cognitive and health improvements, and introduce the concept of “buildingomics”, a holistic approach to examining the complexity of factors in a building that influence human health. Lastly, this session will answer some of the common questions building practitioners face: what are the building factors that influence health and productivity, what is the evidence supporting these relationships, and what can my business do to optimize these factors for health?
