About building health
Welcome to Building Health, where our mission is to bridge the gap between the spaces we inhabit and our well-being. Founded by Joonas, a seasoned Finnish construction engineer with a passion for environmental health, our journey into Building Biology began with a personal realization: the profound impact our built environment has on our health.
Drawing from over a decade of experience in housing construction, Joonas identified a critical need to shift the narrative around traditional construction practices. While materials like asbestos have been banned, the broader spectrum of factors influencing health, such as lighting, heating, ventilation, and electromagnetic radiation, remained largely overlooked.
Building Health stands at the intersection of construction expertise and the science of building biology. We view every component of a building, from the materials to the wiring, as integral to the health of its occupants. Our holistic approach doesn't just stop at identifying potential hazards; it extends to crafting personalized recommendations that consider budget constraints, health statuses, and individual preferences.
At Building Health, we are on a mission to educate individuals about the often-overlooked subject of environmental health. Our website serves as a resource hub, offering free information on building biology, electromagnetic radiation, natural materials, lighting, indoor air quality, and more. We believe that knowledge is the first step towards creating healthier living spaces.
Our services encompass comprehensive healthy home assessments, electromagnetic radiation testing, and consultation services for designing, renovating, and constructing spaces that prioritize well-being. Whether you're experiencing sleep problems, seeking ways to enhance your living environment, or embarking on a construction project, our personalized recommendations are tailored to your unique needs, aligning with your budget, health status, and biological preferences.
Explore our blog, dive into our free resources, or take our electromagnetic radiation quiz for a preliminary assessment of your home. Join us on this journey towards making every home a sanctuary of health, one person at a time, one home at a time.
Welcome to Building Health, where your well-being meets the blueprint of your home.
