Healthy Buildings. Built on Science.

Health is too important to trust to anyone but an expert. When people have questions or issues with their health, they seek the very best, experienced specialists who can find solutions and develop a plan. So why should building health be any different?

This way of thinking about building health has led some of the largest and most sophisticated companies in the world to trust 9 Foundations. We are the leading experts in healthy buildings – academics, scientists, doctors – people who pioneered the science behind healthy buildings and understand better than anyone how to apply it.


The 9 Foundationsof a Healthy Building

The 9 Foundations of a Healthy Building were created by a multidisciplinary team of experts from the Healthy Buildings Program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The 9 Foundations are the core elements of healthy indoor environments, distilled into clear and actionable guidance, and designed to bridge the gap between scientific research and you — the people who control, manage and occupy buildings.
