    ​The purpose of the Green Laboratory Case Study was to determine how biotech laboratories can use the human wellness benefits associated with human-centric design to create greater value for—and better motivate the adoption of—energy efficient building designs and technologies. The report highlights the best practices, insights, and challenges of implementing sustainability in a multi-use building with biotechnology laboratory space and how human health and wellness considerations effected the adoption of energy efficiency at the Chino Hills facility. Verdani conducted interviews and site visits, analyzed energy efficiency and co-wrote the report.
