Title: Human Health and Organisational Benefits by Using Neuro-design within Property Development of Offices; A Case Study regarding the Terraces of NCC’s Office Building, MIMO
Authors: Hammarqvist, Karin
Abstract: This thesis investigates research in neuro-design and how to optimise office properties by human well-being in focus. Human sustainability can also lead to added value such as efficiency, focus, recovery, performance, creativity, and prevention for illness, leading to less sick leave and financial savings for an organization. The aim is to find some common factors contributing to people feeling well-being in the physical environment. The thesis also aims to be an external trend analysis and inspirational for future property developers and project managers to take social sustainability into consideration and be responsible when planning the project scope. The thesis is a collaboration with NCC Property Development. The focus is the project of the office building MIMO in Mölndal. MIMO is a project that will offer a ‘Feelgood-Office’, where it will be easy to solve the puzzle of life and easy to make the choices that make people feel good. The thesis theories on neuro-design appeal to both the office in general and the specific assignment from NCC; is to do a case study of the existing architectural draft for the terraces with neuro-design as a literary base, which fits into ‘FeelGood-Office’. The method for the thesis is to create a background and base through interviews to deepen the knowledge in literary sources, which will then be discussed and culminate in a researched-based case review and recommendations for the terraces. The result and recommendations can also be applicable guidelines for offices in general.
