ABOUT

WE ARE ON A MISSION TO:

Advocate and support the design and development of sustainable communities, environments and structures that support the health and overall wellbeing of people and the planet.

ENVALYS has introduced, through its platform, a new methodology called Restorative Environmental Design (RED), a practical approach to design that is built on observed and measured data research and implementation, concerned with restorative environments.

purpose

ENVALYS works directly with both government and private organizations to help them design, plan and architect a future that supports the psychological and physical wellbeing of their communities to create healthier human spaces and restorative environments.

Psychological well-being

When our environments are healthy, communities thrive. Historically, community planning, architectural design and construction have omitted one of the most significant areas of our lives, our mental health.
ENVALYS ensures that mental well being is central to the design of community planning and development.

Environmental well-being

ENVALYS believes that environmental well-being must consider not only environment forward design but the new environment that new structures and communities create for those using them. We provide the platform, renderings, walk-throughs and tools to help ensure our living, working, leisure and health facilities and spaces progress the mental and physical health of communities, as well as the earth, air, water, flora and fauna around them.

Financial well-being

ENVALYS helps community planning, architectural design and structural engineering teams mitigate additional expenditures by incorporating necessary stakeholder feedback on design, structure, environment, psychology and other social science practices in the earliest stages of planning. ENVALYS empowers adjustments to design and community schemes early and throughout each phase to proactively identify and correct errors, flaws and homogenous perspectives that lead to costly mistakes.
