Developers and architectural designers alike have become increasingly captivated by sustainability and green design—amplified by the demand for big-idea solutions to climate change and an unprecedented global health crisis that has encouraged a re-evaluation of what it means to be both physically and mentally well. As a result, the AEC industry is anticipating an influx of requests from developers in search of cost-effective solutions for making their buildings healthier and safer for inhabitants.
