Call to Speak with a Specialist
The Built Environment is a broad term that covers the physical, human constructed part of our environment where we live and work such as homes, buildings, streets, and open spaces / parks. RHP focuses on the buildings, furnishings, and engineering of these spaces and the health and maintenance of those who live, congregate and work within. The buildings we work with include commercial real estate, manufacturing, food industry, health care, hospitality and multi-family residential buildings.
For the multiple uses of built structures there are varied levels of harmonizing the structure and engineering with the human use, for example, hotels often have fluctuating occupancy and use that can impact the health and comfort requirements of building maintenance and infrastructure.
The sensitive nature of occupants in health care facilities drives a need for monitoring and validation of indoor air quality and cleanliness procedures & processes to prevent infection and outbreak risk. RHP has experience in managing and adapting to the diverse issues building owners, managers, and facility maintenance encounter to evaluate, anticipate potential risks of health and liability.
RHP’s expert team of certified industrial hygienists, public health scientists, and certified safety professionals carry decades of experience working closely with clients and regulatory agencies in identification, analysis, and management of existing and potential health concerns with the built environment.
