#60 Mass Timber Wellness in Workplaces

Existing studies have indicated organisational and wellbeing benefits of mass
timber buildings such as reduced illness, increased job performance and reduced
stress and fatigue. In this study we aim to collect measured data, combining the
data with surveys and interviews to create metrics to demonstrate workplace
wellness and productivity in mass timber buildings. This study searches economic
benefits of mass timber buildings by analysing health-related cost savings,
performance improvements, reduced absenteeism and workplace engagement.

Researchers on the project include: Dr Stephen Whyte, Professor Uwe Dulleck, Dr Ben Chan, Dr Jenny Zhou & Dr Duncan Maxwell.
