There is an important link that can be made between facilities and academic success. Indeed, it’s long been known that well-designed educational buildings affect the academic performance of those inside them. 

Given this connection, it’s important to understand the views of those responsible for the design and specification of educational buildings.

Evidence shows that design can affect patient health outcomes, staff recruitment and retention, and the overall effectiveness of care provided. The importance of good healthcare facilities and the expertise needed to develop them has been apparent since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Buildings are intrinsic to a good quality of life, not least because research shows UK residents spend roughly 90% of their time indoors.

But there is also a mounting body of research that connects building performance to people’s health and wellbeing. This has raised the profile of building designers and engineers, leading some to suggest they are the ‘physicians of the future’. 

The need for ‘greener’ buildings is well established. However, focus is now shifting to take a more holistic view of how buildings affect the people who live and work in them. In turn, wellness and sustainability have become closely connected, fuelling a ‘healthy by design’ approach. But what does this mean in practice? 

Designing Healthy is a campaign based on deep insights into the drivers and challenges faced by hundreds of architects, specifiers and contractors when designing buildings today.   

Throughout 2021, REHAU will be releasing a series of reports analysing different building types.

It's an evolution of Build Your Legacy which encouraged architects, consultants and contractors to consider how the product they chose today will impact on a building's performance in years to come.
