What is it about?

Most people live in cities and work in offices, two contexts offering many health risks. We argue that there are many possible cross-overs between health-directed design interventions in offices and cities, which offer opportunities for urban planners and facility managers to reinforce each other, and interesting market opportunities for the further development of urban facility management.

Why is it important?

Cross-overs between facilities and cities are new and can inspire both facility managers and urban planners to work more closely for the benefit of citizens and office workers.


The findings are directly applicable to facility and urban design practices and to facility management education by involving students in city design practices.
