IFMA Seattle Lunch & Learn: Proven Technologies and Approaches for Healthy, Efficient Buildings

By understanding available, high-performance technologies and the ways each aspect of a building works together, building owners, designers and operators can plan improvements that not only save time, money, and energy—but also improve occupant health, comfort, wellbeing, and productivity. This range of positive health outcomes is supported by recent peer-reviewed research studies on the benefits of daylighting, lighting, and ventilation on a variety of health aspects including cognition, sleep, and absenteeism.

This session will introduce building-industry decisionmakers to several energy-efficient technologies applicable to retrofits and new construction, with an emphasis on approaches to upgrading existing buildings to meet current and emerging building performance standards, such as the Washington State Clean Building Standard.


Learn Objectives:

  • Understand the value of sequencing building upgrades and integrating the following emerging technologies to maximize cost and energy savings.
  • Learn how energy-saving technologies can further benefit occupant health and well-being.
  • Understand some of the primary considerations and best practices when deciding what upgrades to employ in your building(s).
