In Focus: The Business Case for the Building of the Future
4 Feb 2022
Over the past two years, building occupants have become more aware of the health of the environment around them, especially indoors. Additionally, awareness of “Sick Building Syndrome” — the idea that building occupants become sick from the building they work in — has grown. Now, occupants expect the opposite: a smart, healthy building.
It’s not only building occupants. With the labor shortage expected to continue well into 2022, employees are also in the unique position to be selective in the company for which they choose to work. Looking ahead, building owners and managers are going to have to step up their facility infrastructure to make sure their working environment is one in which all occupants — employees, patients, shoppers, or visitors — feel safe and comfortable.
