Active Buildings: modelling physical activity and movement in office buildings
Active Buildings is a 2-year research project collaboration between the Epidemiology and Public Health (EPH) Department (Population Health Sciences Faculty) and the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies (Faculty of the Built Environment), both at University College London. It has been funded by the then newly created NIHR School for Public Health Research. Launched in April 2012, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Public Health Research (SPHR) is a collaboration between eight leading academic centres with excellence in applied public health research in England. Overall Aim: To understand how physical activity (PA) accumulates within office environments and to model the relationship between workplace layout and PA. These data will be used as a basis for estimating the potential for PA change through layout modification in future interventions or the design of new buildings. Agent based modelling and indoor tracking (active RFID) are part of the project's innovative approaches to this complex research question.
