The Building Research Establishment (BRE) is running a long-term trial investigating the impact of biophilic interventions into the workplace. This will involve environmental and ergonomic designs that are intended to provide a healthful working space for the BRE staff in a refurbished floor of a 1980s building on the BRE campus.
The Light Review is a Dissemination Partner for The Biophilic Office and will be posting regular articles on the progress of the trial.
