Integrative Design is a process to engage those who own, manage, design, build and occupy a space as co-creators, to discover synergies and produce building and human performance, environmental benefits and other efficiencies.
Chad Groshart will share Integrative Design best practices and lessons learned from two recent projects targeting WELL Platinum certification: Delos Headquarters, New York City and WorkBar, Boston.
He will be joined by Meg Smith, who will offer examples of innovative, spectrally engineered LED platforms that provide design flexibility, to cost-effectively satisfy co-created project requirements and deliver evidence-based and quantified health and well-being benefits.
