What is Building Biology?

Building Biology is an interdisciplinary life science integrating the holistic synergies and their interactions between all living things and their natural and built environments. It connects the study between buildings and the environment they are built in and their impact upon the health and well-being of those who occupy them.

What does a Building Biologist do?

Building Biologists understand and focus on the health and wellbeing of those who occupy the building. Your home, work place or play space not only provide you shelter, the building also supports your health, mind, body and spirit.

Building Biologists provide you with the understanding on how to create and manage healthier indoor spaces, and enhance healthy occupants (as well as support our planet’s ecology on a global scale).
