Will healthier office buildings be valued more?

 

Helping asset managers improve the wellbeing of their real estate customers

Francesca Brady, CEO of AirRated joins Bold Founder, Caleb Parker, to share how her company is helping asset managers improve the wellbeing of their real estate customers, and leverage this to win business.

As more and more companies move to a hybrid world where workplace choice is ubiquitous, customers who are "voting with their feet" will choose to work where they feel most productive, and feel safe and taken care of….especially coming out of the pandemic.

In this episode Francesca and Caleb talk about the importance of good air quality in our offices, why this matters to the customer experience and how LGIM is rolling this out across 2M SqFt of real estate this year.

They discuss the science behind how good air quality affects productivity, we learn what an AirScore is and how customers will choose where they work based on its AirScore, and ultimately how this could affect asset valuation.
