Make sure you check out our Breakout Session, Healthy Role Model: the American Modern Insurance Group Campus at 10:45 pm in Room 202. Healthy buildings are more than just sustainable facilities with recycling stations, low VOC materials and ENERGY STAR® certification. They are complex structures that must support a thriving work force and exemplify the values the company places on its employees, customers and the environment. Healthy buildings also impact the physical and neurological wellbeing and productivity of the individual and teams they support. As one of Cincinnati’s Top Workplaces, AMIG and their design partner, KZF Design, will share strategies being implemented on the 514,000 SF AMIG Campus. Learning objectives: Key factors of the relationship between people and buildings. Discuss specific strategies, their benefits and challenges. Sitting is the New Smoking and other hot trends.
