    GBCI Credit: TBA

    In President Xi Jinping’s Healthy China 2030 Plan, health will be “the center of the country’s entire policy-making machinery”. Environmental and behavioral risk factors are two major categories of risk for people’s health; both can be influenced in the built environment. Environmental factors include air, water, light, thermal, acoustical, ergonomics and other building performance metrics. Behavioral factors include building operation policies, employer policies, and occupant behaviors in buildings.

    In China, the unique environmental and behavioral challenges in the building industry call for targeted scientific solutions to mitigate the risk factors in the indoor environment. In order to quantify the impact interventions may have on risk factors in the built environment, they must be tested against the rigor of the scientific method. Unfortunately, there is usually a large gap between the results of a laboratory test and the implementation of an intervention. Living laboratories have begun to measure interventions in context using a multidisciplinary approach, one that brings together health science, building science and behavioral science. The evidence generated from these labs may have immediate practical implications for architects, developers, contractors and engineers, as well as the scientific community at large.

    This presentation will summarize the original concept and research findings of a living lab in the United States. We will then introduce the concept and technical capabilities of a new living lab in Beijing, China. We will also discuss potential fundamental and applied human-subject research topics to provide scientific solutions to the unique indoor health challenges in China for the building professionals.
