Design Impacting Lives 

ASID Releases Comprehensive Research Study on the Impact of Design in the Workplace

First WELL and LEED Platinum Certified Space in the  World 
Showcases the Impact of Design

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) completed a full spectrum of pre- and post-occupancy research on its new Washington, D.C. headquarters. The research shows how workplace design positively influences health, wellness, employee satisfaction, and work performance.
"We're proud to share all aspects of this journey with the design community and the world at large," explains ASID CEO Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID. "The overall design of this space was driven by the research and data collected during pre-occupancy and its success is demonstrated through the post-occupancy data. ASID is committed to sharing updated evaluations as we continue to enhance our employee experience and improve workplace utilization."
In partnership with Cornell University, Delos, and the Innovative Workplace Institute, ASID researched the impact of innovative workplace design on behavior and performance, how spatial design supports organizational goals, and the impact of design on human, organizational, and environmental sustainability. Research was conducted through a series of in-depth interviews and employee surveys, sociometric data culled from badges worn voluntarily by employees, and environmental metrics from the building and measured within the office. Research highlights include...
