Building Biology is a health science that looks at the relationship between humans and the buildings that they inhabit as well as the relationship between buildings and the natural environment. Building Biology helps to identify hazards in the indoor built environment and educate people about the potential health effects as well as the devastating effects on the planet as a whole.
Building Biology operates on 25 principles developed by Anton Schneider from Germany in the 1970’s. Air quality, water quality, soil pollution, electromagnetic radiation, toxic chemicals in cleaning products, building materials as well as building design are all considered by a Building Biologist. The building in which you live or work represents your third skin and as such it should be able to breathe and support your well being.
