Sustainable healthcare interior design is evolving rapidly from the sterile clinical spaces of the past and into a much more carefully considered entity. Modern medical interior spaces must not only be created to achieve optimal patient and carer wellbeing for ultimately better patient outcomes, but in today’s healthcare scenario, they must also be built in a sustainable way.
The Importance of Sustainability in Healthcare Interior Design
Medical offices and other healthcare facilities use a tremendous amount of energy, and as such medical offices must incorporate sustainable factors. Your medical practice will be more effective and more efficient in all aspects of its operation with innovative, visionary and sustainable design. This in turn will translate to a positive reflection of your practice in the eyes of your patients, and consequently your practice will grow, due to its modernized perception as a fresh, professional, and aesthetically affirmative environment.
How Can Innovative Healthcare Interior Design Make Healthcare Facilities More Sustainable?
Just a few ways to build a sustainable medical interior include:
- Consult with medical staff in the design process to achieve workable results for all users of the space
- Understand that environmental sustainability is compatible with health and wellbeing
- Reduce environmental impact by building with sustainable materials such as natural wood, low allergenic painting materials, recycled carpeting materials, energy-efficient lighting, etc
- Choose materials for their longevity, low maintenance requirements, and hygienic properties
- Adopt use of fresh air in preference to air conditioning wherever possible
- Anticipate future needs to minimize the need for remodeling
- Incorporate natural resources into the design; for example, maximize natural light through windows and skylights where possible, create aesthetically pleasing green outlooks, incorporate calming water features using recycled water
- Consider the most sustainable medical and non-medical waste-disposal practices available and recycle wherever possible.
