As a certified Bcorp, BRM is dedicated to using our business as a force for good. Across all services we deliver, from design, to project management and property strategy, BRM places the wellbeing of our clients at the centre of what we do. While wellbeing and commercial property haven’t always been closely associated, now, particularly with the Coronavirus outbreak, commercial property owners and tenants are taking unprecedented measures to ensure their buildings are healthy enough for the people within them. So what are the elements that make a building healthy or unhealthy?

Well it just so happens that the workplace practices mentioned below are being picked up so quickly by companies around the world, they're becoming the norm, rather than a passing craze!
Our recent work with The Australian Conservation Foundation saw a re-design of its office layout that resulted in an eco-friendly and efficient workspace.
When discussing sustainable workplaces, the question that often arises is whether a sustainable office space can be executed at a similar cost to that of a traditional office space.

In fact, a sustainable workplace can also lead to broader economic benefits for the company and improve its bottom line.
The lead up to Plastic Free July has been quite exciting, with big names like Coles and Woolworths phasing out plastic bags. And, while the world will never be rid of plastic completely, it’s encouraging to see so many individuals and companies getting behind initiatives that will make a difference.
To celebrate Plastic Free July, we’ve compiled a list of workplace practices that your organisation can adopt in its own effort to minimise plastic waste.
Searching for new office space gives you an opportunity to consider the ways you can improve your eco-footprint.
An energy efficient workspace will have a direct impact on your bottom line and positively impact the environment.
When assessing space options, consider responsible workplace design and look at how the building adheres to some of the simple environmentally sustainable practices.
