Editorial Reviews


“This book should be essential reading for all who commission, design, manage, and use buildings―indeed anyone who is interested in a healthy environment.”Norman Foster

Healthy Buildings is both hugely important and a great read. By the end it not only completely persuaded me that improving the health of our buildings is a fabulous economic opportunity and something that could change the lives of millions of people―it gave me a very good sense of where to start. Highly recommended.”Rebecca Henderson, John and Natty McArthur University Professor, Harvard University

Healthy Buildings makes a great contribution by urging us to shift to a ‘health-first’ mindset in relation to our built environment. Its unique insights help close the knowledge gap around healthy buildings, reveal their important role in global sustainability, and provide practical guidance on the main factors we should all be on the lookout for in our homes, offices, and schools.”Cristina Gamboa, CEO of the World Green Building Council

“The engaging conversational style of this comprehensive book makes it an ideal read for any busy building owner or executive who wants to learn about the new science of healthy buildings and to discover how following healthy building strategies may impact their (and society’s) bottom line.”Christoph Reinhart, Director of MIT’s Building Technology Program and Head of the Sustainable Design Lab

“Sustainability and health can no longer exist in separate domains. Healthy Buildings bridges the divide. Allen and Macomber link health science and business science for a new way to think about buildings.”John Mandyck, CEO of Urban Green Council

“Indoor air quality directly impacts our lungs, and we have a responsibility to remove indoor air pollutants that are linked to asthma, lung cancer, and other serious diseases. Healthy Buildings lays out the simple steps we can all take to improve our health.”Harold Wimmer, National President and CEO of the American Lung Association

“In this new era of ESG responsibility, every CEO must consider our built environment to fully meet stakeholder expectations. Joe Allen and John Macomber’s multidisciplinary, accessible approach unlocks the secret to future human health and productivity gains in the very buildings in which we live and work.”Tom Burton, Chair of the Energy and Sustainability Practice, Mintz
