Modern Ceiling Systems and Their Impact on Health and Wellbeing
According to the shifting demographics of the Australian population, demand for health care and aged care will eventually outpace supply. In this context, greater scrutiny is being placed on the design and construction of healthcare and aged care facilities and how they can improve the lives of patients and residents.
The COVID-19 pandemic hit the elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions the hardest. Throughout 2020 and 2021 it became clear that we need better healthcare spaces to not only stop the spread of infection but also to reduce the impact of social isolation amongst these groups. In this context, greater scrutiny is being placed on the design and construction of healthcare and aged care facilities and how they can improve the lives of patients and residents. High-performing and fit-for-purpose ceiling systems offer one of the most cost-effective ways to deliver improved health and wellbeing outcomes to the general population.
Designed for Healing: Modern Ceiling Systems and Their Impact on Health and Wellbeing addresses the capabilities of modern construction materials and their role in healthcare spaces, with a special focus on bespoke ceiling systems. We take a close look at three key themes driving the evolution of healthcare design: the patient experience, the shift away from large institutional layouts and the rising cost of construction. We discuss why building in flexibility and adaptability is the best design response to these challenges, and the importance of ceiling design in achieving overarching health and wellbeing objectives.
