Major messages

    Turn medical practitioners into advocates.

    Encourage the industry to continue to increase attention on creating healthier environments for architects.

    Motivate owners to make healthy building investments.

A competitive, green edge

Firms that do more green work are more likely to report the influence of health on their decisions. How do you stack up?

The SmartMarket Report contains data to help you compare your practice against your peers. While the anticipated effect of health on design decisions over the next two years doesn’t vary by firm size or location, it is influenced by green level of involvement.

This groundbreaking market study makes the connections between design and health better known to the industry and the public by benchmarking how the industry is designing and building with health in mind, how the healthcare and human resources community is making connections between design and health and productivity, and how people are learning about the impacts of buildings on their health and well-being.
