Part 3 in our series on Wellbeing in Interiors brings together engineers, interior designers, quantity Surveyors, architects, academics, manufacturers and healthcare experts to examine how Evidence Based Design (EBD) can add value to the interiors industry, promote human wellbeing and enhance corporate growth.
Evidence Based Design (EBD), now well accepted in healthcare interiors, analyses how a well conceived physical environment can promote wellbeing. Every party within the interiors industry has an opportunity now to implement this research and provide long term benefits for individuals and organisations. By applying EBD to places of work, education, retail, leisure and homes, the industry has the chance to increase and sustain wellbeing for all.
Many design factors have a calculable impact on interior occupants and ultimately the client’s bottom line. Previously in the series we have heard academics and experts share knowledge on acoustics, colour, materials, ventilation, design for the senses, occupancy surveys, and the value of wellbeing. Job satisfaction, increased productivity, higher occupancy/lower absenteeism can result from applying knowledge that derives from an increasing body of research in this field.
The Feeling Good series looks at all these factors and helps you to apply scientific and financial research to your line of work.
