Building biology describes the use of healthy building principles as a means to improve living and work spaces and the health of people who occupy them while having a low impact on the environment.
There are 25 principles in Building Biology that have to be considered, comprised from ecological, biological, spiritual, aesthetic, social and community principles. A list can be found on the New Zealand BBE website.
