COVID-19 has spotlighted the need for spaces that are healthier, better designed and more inclusive, and companies are increasingly acknowledging benefits—such as greater mental wellbeing, increased productivity and cost savings—that come from healthier urban environments and workplaces. Imagine sensers that monitor heat, light and air quality, or occupancy trackers that trigger a cleaning order when a room becomes empty. The most prevalent technologies in this space revolve around tracking health-related metrics within buildings, communication, occupant experience and personalized control tools, as well as touchless technologies and automation.
