Benchmarking for Health within the Real Estate Sector
2:00pm - Room 202C
Description: Over the past century, public health research has outlined the connections between the built environment and health outcomes of occupants. These connections have become more important than ever considering the intensified focus on occupant wellbeing throughout the real estate sector.
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, building owners have been met with increasing demand to provide data showing how their built environment impacts human health. In order to instill trust, it is critical that building owners can confidently show metrics backed by research and science. Demand for health certification systems has greatly increased and as a result, more data is being made available about their effectiveness. Do people respond to the strategies identified in public health research and implemented in their facilities? Is there a clear, measurable outcome for human health? Health benchmarking is a valuable tool to connect this important data to building occupants.
During this session, we’ll reveal the outcomes of a new study that can help drive decision making around health-related actions across real estate portfolios, and we’ll focus on the role evaluation and measurement plays in translating research strategies into concise data points that can then be used to instill trust and ultimately, increase real estate portfolio value.
