Building health and comfort

The comfort and quality of a building’s indoor environment can be affected by the materials used in its construction.

Concrete is widely used in healthcare construction because it dampens vibration associated with specialized equipment, and this same property is ideal for acoustic installation in multifamily homes and office spaces. Concrete is also an inert, emission-free material that does not emit any gas, toxic compounds or volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
