The Future of the Built Environment Needs “Sustainovation” Webinar
Includes a Live Event on 10/18/2022 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
As the pandemic has impacted how and where we live, work, and play, our built environments have been put under the microscope – we are reevaluating how we use certain places and spaces, how they function, and the impact they have on our health and wellness. What does the future of our built environments look like? Are our workplaces filled with flashy amenities that hope to lure people back to the office such as robot manicures, virtual golf simulators, and pool tables? Or should our buildings be driven by smart, intentional innovations that are seamlessly integrated into buildings that impact how we utilize spaces, our behavioral patterns, our health and wellness and the environment? In this webinar, hear from experts at Skanska USA Commercial Development on a new term that characterizes the new reality of our built environments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and environmental concerns: “Sustainovation.” Learn more about Sustainovation and how it encapsulates the future-forward outlook the commercial real estate industry must have in evolving innovative technologies that foster health and wellness as well as prioritize sustainability in development.
