Presented By: John Mlade, Director of Sustainable & Healthy Environments, Wight & Company
Course Description: Building for health, well-being, and human performance has continued to advance with the development of capabilities to address a wide-range of health challenges through design, construction, and operations. This session describes an integrated, health-centric approach to green building that allows practitioners to prioritize community and occupant health goals alongside traditional sustainability goals.
We will discuss the process to engage stakeholders and balance tradeoffs between different approaches and strategies. This health promotion process can work with LEED, WELL, Fitwel and other frameworks and help projects take intentional, directed action to address specific public health challenges. We will include a look at the LEED v4 Gold and WELL Gold certified Colorado Health Foundation office building in Denver as a case study.
