📄 Regenerative design and biophilia, an innovative approach to healthcare infrastructure-[EN].
Regenerative design processes have direct impacts on the operational and maintenance costs of the hospital estates.
Evidence (research from 1981 -2014) suggests that natural light, access to nature, and views of nature should be incorporated into design for Healthcare facilities. While there are initial upfront costs to this design the payback is quantifiable to allocated capital funds but more importantly, to the patients and the staff.
Biophilia strategies not only will futureproof any investment but they will also assist the Hospital funds to meet their saving targets while improving patient care and staff atisfaction.
