Futurebuild announces new strategic partner

  • 15 Feb 2019

Futurebuild has recently announced the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) as a strategic partner, as well as a headline partner of the Interiors Hub.

IWBI delivers the cutting-edge WELL Building Standard, the leading global rating system and the first to be focused exclusively on the ways that buildings, and everything in them, can improve comfort, drive better choices, and generally enhance, not compromise, health and wellness.

The Interiors Hub will focus on the importance of designing for health and well-being, showcasing the latest research, case studies and practical design guidance.

Manufacturers Milliken and Herman Miller are joining IWBI as co-sponsors of the Interiors Hub. Together IWBI, Milliken and Herman Miller will curate content for the Interior Hub’s seminar programme, with a focus on health and well-being in building design, materials, build and use.

Discussions will include how buildings can advance human health, the cognitive impact of clean air in the internal environment, the benefits of biophilic design, the WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™) and designing for dementia.

Visitors can connect with industry peers and participate in more than a dozen sessions across the three-day exhibition, running from 05-07 March at London’s ExCeL.

Rachel Gutter, President at IWBI, comments: “Our goal is to accelerate market transformation and put people front and centre when it comes to the design, construction and operations of our buildings and communities.”

Alison Kitchingman, Milliken’s Director of Marketing and Design, comments: “Milliken is committed to creating products that not only meet the needs of a space but enhance well-being, a sense of identity and community. As founding members of the Well Living Lab, Milliken is committed to researching and studying the impacts of the indoor environment on health and well-being.”

Milliken signed on to IWBI’s WELL Portfolio Pathway pilot to deliver the evidence-based performance of WELL across its portfolio and improve the health and wellness of people at scale.

Martin Hurn, MD of Futurebuild, comments: “Businesses have so much to gain from properly advancing good health and well-being, and good practice makes good business in terms of team well-being and attracting the best talent to ensure their future innovation and success. There will be a lot for manufacturers, designers, engineers and many more specialists to dig into at the Interiors Hub during Futurebuild 2019.”
