Presentation: Google: Driving Health and Experience Outcomes Members Only
Google aims to create healthy spaces that enable and inspire people to think big and perform at their best every day. During this session they will share their work to develop evidence-based performance requirements for design and construction aimed at creating extraordinary experience for Googlers through providing a rich, variable, multi-sensory experience in the workplace. Google is working with international experts in Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) to develop, implement and validate new practices to enhance occupant health and experience – in contrast to existing standards that emphasize risk reduction rather than health and experience promotion. To move beyond typical market approaches to design of indoor environments, Google's IEQ requirements attempt to draw new connections between cutting edge research and application in the built environment. They will share approaches to design, construction and verification of outcome-based measures for indoor air quality, daylighting and lighting, thermal comfort, acoustics, and the integration of nature with design.




Presentation: Dynamic Piloting at Zurich North America Members Only
Zurich is unique in how it's using the design process for its future North American HQ to engage employees and incorporate real-time feedback into solutions. The result has been increased excitement as well as an objective understanding of what will best support the organization. The unique step in Zurich's process has been the creation of a large-scale dynamic pilot. Unlike most pilots, it was not a test of one design but of 4 different neighborhood configurations, 3 different team rooms, and dozens of different support settings and technologies. To maximize feedback, each group lived in one neighborhood for 3-4 weeks before rotating to another. Feedback was captured in real time through observations, surveys, and a helpdesk. Disruptions were minimized by a high-touch change management process. Participation was phenomenal! Over 80% responded to each survey. Outside interest was so high that weekly tours were scheduled. Many participants and non-participants alike posted comments expressing happiness with the rigor with which Zurich was approaching the workplace. Most importantly, the pilot generated a vast amount of data on how the workplace impacts productivity and satisfaction. Additionally quantitative measures weeded out numerous elements that failed. The dynamic pilot provided deep insights about culture, work patterns and a clear direction for the design of the new HQ.
