Construction Management programs across the country focus on educating students about the main segments of the construction industry, however, there is not courses that allow students to affiliate themselves with sustainable, healthy building practices. This senior project created the opportunity for students to learn about the rising segment trend of healthy building in construction. Students will be informed about what healthy building is and how it should be implemented into the construction and design process. Topics will focus on discussing hard and soft building components that negatively affect building occupant health and performance, as well as how each component can be changed or newly implemented. A collection of peer reviewed journals, publications, reports, videos, and the book Healthy Buildings, will be the reading material. The course material will provide students with solutions to implement into the design and construction of buildings to improve the wellbeing of building occupants. Students will be introduced to the three major healthy building standard accreditation organizations, IWBI WELL, Fitwel, and Living Building Challenge. This course allows for students to be exposed to data and research that is vital for progressive change in the construction industry.
