Office greens FROM THE EDITOR Over the past few years, an increasing amount of waterfront property has been built with a sustainable design or ‘green building’ approach. This includes an integration of renewable and low-carbon energy, careful use and re-use of water, use of natural building materials and creation of green outdoor spaces. This is the nub – but not the full picture. Much as successful marina design takes a broad range of aspects into consideration, green building involves much thought and analysis before ground is broken. According to the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC), green building involves minimising the use of energy at all stages of a building’s life cycle. Buildings should resist flooding, earthquakes and fire, and be flexible in terms of space so that, if needs be, they can be repurposed. All stages of the process should be examined – from design, construction, operation and maintenance, through to renovation and eventual demolition – in terms of environmental impacts and the maximisation of social and economic values. Going green is good for planet and people; it saves money and promotes good health. A WorldGBC April 2018 report* highlights the tangible economic benefits of green buildings, showcasing improved occupant satisfaction when companies implement new health, wellbeing and productivity features in existing green structures. After adding features such as enhanced air ventilation, acoustic privacy, increase of daylight penetration and use of biophilic design elements such as green walls and extensive indoor plants, employee absenteeism was reduced, operating costs were minimised and employees felt more productive and healthier. Full results can be read at worldgbc.org but here’s a snapshot of the case studies. Sherwin-William’s Centro American headquarters in El Salvador saw a 68% reduction in reported respiratory problems and a 64% drop in allergy problems, absenteeism fell by 44% and the company calculated a total annual saving of US,000; Plantonics in the Netherlands has estimated increased employee productivity at €2.1 million per year; absenteeism dropped by more than four days per person per year at Cundall’s UK office and staff turnover reduced by 27% to provide a total estimated annual saving of around £200,000. Terri Wills, CEO of WorldGBC, sums up: “This report should send a clear signal to companies with employees, as well as building owners and managers, to make green building investments a priority. It’s obvious that making energy efficient improvements will reduce operating costs but arguably an even greater impact of green improvements are those felt by the people who spend their working lives in these spaces. Greener workspaces are healthier, more enjoyable places to work, and this has a tangible impact on productivity, employee health and the business bottom line.” While some of these suggested improvements involve infrastructure changes that require planning and could be costly or disruptive, we can all go green with real greenery – it’s easy and low-cost. If we fill our offices with an abundance of indoor plants, we will be creating a more attractive – and healthier – workplace.
