Design begins with understanding the relationship between people and their environments. Design research assesses the impact design has on user efficiency and comfort through learning how people are feeling, thinking, and behaving in their environment. Results lead to cost effectiveness, worker productivity, meaningful engagement, and well-being.
Whether looking to build efficiency in healthcare, educational, or workplace facilities, design research is the first step towards improving measurable results. Effective research methods lead to team consensus, expedited speed to market, improved workflows, and less waste.
Design research has the power to streamline operations and bring value to the bottom line. Effectively organizing layers of information ranging from energy efficiency, space utilization, and behavior, leads to improved satisfaction and higher returns on investments.
