Research has demonstrated that full-spectrum daylighting is associated with healthier, more productive occupants. “The extent to which daylight exposure impacts office workers is remarkable,” said study* co-author Ivy Cheung, a Neuroscience doctoral candidate at Northwestern University. “The architectural design of office environments should take into consideration how natural daylight exposure may contribute to employee wellness.”

  • People feel and perform better = improving productivity (as much as 15%)
  • A healthier indoor environment = reduced absenteeism
  • Energy is saved (by reducing the typical 35-50% of lighting electricity)
  • Green buildings increase value
  • Up to 4% Rent Premium; 7.5% Higher Resale Value, 9.5% Higher Occupancy Rate
