The B4H evaluation of the building integrates four areas of medicine and scientific research: 

  • Human physiology - direct effects of temperature and humidity on human health and immune system functions
  • Infectious disease - influence of environmental factors on the transmission and virulence of viruses and bacteria
  • Toxicology - exposure levels and tissue penetration of organic and inorganic compounds
  • Microbiology - membrane characteristics, cell metabolism and genetic regulation of processes governing indoor microbiome diversity

Based on extensive research into the built environment and its impact on patient health outcomes, B4H has identified and codified measurable standards for safe and healthy indoor environments.
