What role does the physical workplace play in occupant health and wellbeing? How can the office improve wellness through more effective building systems integration?
Over the past few months, we hosted a series of webinars to share our 10-point roadmap to guide organizations through their reentry into the physical workplace (http://bit.ly/PLASTARC-roadmap). We surveyed attendees of each session to identify workplace issues impacting their business, allowing us to see how these have changed over time. The shifts we saw convinced us that there has been a renewed emphasis on the role our built environment plays on our health and wellbeing; in fact, most organizations will need to adapt their building systems to address wellness more directly than ever before.
As the third panel discussion in our new series, this session will focus on the physical office and the building system modifications organizations must make in response to occupant needs going forward. Leveraging topics introduced in our first and second panels regarding shifts in workplace culture and protocols, we will specifically discuss the implications of existing office environments on employee health and well-being in order to unveil opportunities for systems integration. The conversation will also touch on emerging innovations in the AEC realm related to wayfinding, indoor air quality, plumbing, sustainability, and facility maintenance.
Join us as we bring together experts and thought leaders from architecture and interior design, engineering and systems design, workplace journey planning, and integrated sustainability - with deliberate attention given to means of aligning all building systems for improved user experience and workplace wellness.
