Since early 2020, it seems as if the world has changed drastically. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly changed how we work, play, and live. Design professionals have experienced this shift profoundly. When designing interior spaces, design professionals must consider aesthetics, cost, and energy efficiency, but also how their choices impact the health and well-being of occupants. While this has been the case for some time, the COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of designing healthy spaces.

This course will begin with a discussion of Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and the elements which together can help support the health and well-being of building occupants. Next, the course will explore how interior finish choices can positively impact indoor air quality. Included will be a discussion of what products certifications the specifier should seek when selecting products with health and well-being in mind. The course will then touch on the importance of daylighting and acoustic control in maintaining a healthy interior. Finally, this course will review how interior finish choices can work together to create healthy, sustainable and beautiful spaces. Case studies will be used to illustrate successful designs.
