Ergonomic Architecture & Building Design

The aim of ergonomics in all stages of the design lifecycle is to eliminate and engineer out potential safety hazards and/or productivity issues.

Our work has included reviews of plant, structures and work sites.  At early stage of design all the way through to decommission stages.

We offer:

  • Design risk assessments
  • Anthropometrics technical reports
  • Mockup and prototype workshops
  • Ergonomics for engineers education
  • Heuristic evaluations
  • Cost benefit analysis of controls
Green ergonomics in the workplace

The aim of Green Ergonomics is to assist towards the integration of ergonomics into design that is functional, productive and healthy for the intended users, thereby promoting sustainability both at an individual level and systems level.
