By holistically considering all aspects of the creation and use of materials, designers can improve the health of the planet and people on it. AIA developed the Architecture & Design Materials Pledge to inspire members to shift the way in which we evaluate the products and finishes that we specify daily across five topics: human health, social health and equity, ecosystem health, climate health, and a circular economy. The CoverMyMeds Campus in Columbus, Ohio, is a great example of use of sustainable materials.
With the redevelopment of a 15-acre urban brownfield site, CoverMyMeds has created a unique headquarters campus with a focus on employee health and well-being. The space ensures people of all abilities have what they need to be successful at work and can access all areas of the campus, including diverse workspaces, alternative transportation options, and the ability to work outdoors. Employees will also have access to outdoor walking paths, the Scioto River and downtown bike paths, a fitness area and hydration bars on each floor. And a central staircase connects all floors, promoting movement and encouraging social connections and collaboration.
In line with CoverMyMeds’ “Be Selfless” and “Do the Right Thing” core values, and commitment to the environment, they are piloting the latest in smart building technology to reduce energy consumption and limit their carbon footprint.
The campus is sustainably designed to LEED and WELL Standards.
