The design, delivery and management of healthy buildings

Published October 2023

Health and well-being are becoming key considerations in built environment design and management for every property professional and discipline. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly challenging for surveyors and other built environment professionals to navigate healthy choices around building design decisions, certifications, products and operations, with new regulations and voluntary standards emerging that require detailed guidance and expertise.

With well-being also forming an important part of ESG, surveyors, funders and developers are keen to understand, enhance and measure the ways in which their property portfolios can support human health.

This paper is intended as an overview document and ‘one stop shop’ of guidance and key considerations, rather than detailed recommendations and actions for each discipline.
