Why do some seemingly well-designed places sit empty while others draw people together, becoming lively hubs? Even within a successful planned community, there is likely to be at least one or two surprisingly under-utilized venues. This dynamic plays out again and again, across the range a community's space types.
To minimize this, it is critical to understand the design of places – either negatively or positively – affect human behavior as well as health and well-being. With that, research-based evidence is essential to produce spaces that consistently function as intended.
Building Design Research Solutions is led by Dr. Campbell, one of the foremost experts in the field of design and building for seniors. Dr. Campbell and Building Design Research Solutions use research to inform how to best design buildings and communities to support an organization's goals and overcome challenges.
So how does that work?
Organizations work together with Building Design Research Solutions to pinpoint goals and challenges. For instance, these may include:
- improving life quality for older adults
- avoiding building wasted space
- deciding which facilities to remodel vs. new build
- enhancing health & productivity of employees/residents
- decreasing instances of illnesses such as depression
- enabling older adults to live independently longer
- enlivening a community social scene
- reducing turnover and sick days
- improving employee/resident satisfaction
- reviving under-utilized spaces
- turning a place into a well-loved hangout
- generating more word or mouth recommendations.
Once these are identified, Dr. Campbell's team develops a plan to help meet your organization's specific goals and needs. To do this, research is used to understand the problem and inform appropriate solutions.
