Building Biology- What is this?

Home > News & Media > Sustainable building blog

Building biology is the study of the relationship between buildings and life. While it considers the connection between people and buildings and between buildings and the environment, it is more specifically concerned with the impact of the built environment on human health and the use of this knowledge to create healthier homes and workplaces.

The primary concern of building biologists is the health and wellbeing of building occupants. We see your home or workplace as your “third skin” – ideally, a breathable, flexible structure that not only provides shelter, but also supports the health of your body, mind and spirit. We are guided by principles which advocate:

  • building in a quiet, non toxic environment
  • building on a site which receives abundant natural light  and is not subjected to adverse effects of man-made electromagnetic radiation or negative earth energies
  • using building materials that are non toxic, breathable and naturally regulate indoor humidity
  • minimising electromagnetic fields from electrical wiring and appliances
  • using natural light and radiant heat as much as possible
  • optimising indoor air temperature
  • ensuring adequate ventilation
  • providing the best possible quality of drinking water
  • producing, using and disposing of materials in ways that are as inexpensive as possible and have minimum impact on the environment
