There's Still Time, Make Your Voice Heard

You can still participate in the Dodge Data & Analytics study on the impact of building design and construction on the health and well-being of building occupants. If you've already completed the survey, thank you! If not, there's still time.

Your input is important to ensure that the study gives an accurate picture of the ways interior designers contribute to healthier buildings. Please don't delay, complete the survey today. It will only take 10-15 minutes.

The results of the survey will be used to produce a SmartMarket Report, which will be widely distributed in the U.S. and internationally.

The survey closes at 11:59 EST on Friday, March 11. Your responses will be completely confidential and used for this survey only. All responses will be analyzed in aggregate, and no individual responses will be referenced or used in any way. In appreciation for your time, those completing the survey will have the option to receive this exciting new report.

Thank you for sharing your insights.
