Level One: NiD Map
The program entry point is Level One: NiD Map. Map involves a comprehensive, qualitative assessment of an existing or proposed design, based on our proprietary criteria. Even more effectively, NiD can provide input into your design brief: Early advice is easiest to implement; however, NiD can provide input at any point. The principle deliverable is a report, offering a range of practical options for enhancement, ranked according to cost and ease of implementation. Where possible, we’ll provide a 3D visualization of the possible options, as an immersive experience, to assist our customers with decision making and stakeholder engagement.
Level Two: NiD Lab
NiD Lab builds on Level One by adding measurement to the mapping exercise and advice on options. After partnering with our customers and establishing their priorities, we conduct field and lab experiments, with the assistance of the University of Sydney, to accurately quantify benefits, before and after improvements have been made.
Level Three: NiD Tech
The final stage, Level Three: NiD Tech is the future for built space and technology, just around the corner. Based on the data generated from Level 2, the vision for Level 3 NiD Tech is to offer customers indoor environments that respond in real-time to the needs of the people in them, while offering building managers and leadership teams, real time information to help them implement beneficial changes and plan for the future.
Neuroscience in Design (NiD)
Inherited from reptiles, the 'cerebellum' is the oldest part of the brain. Here we process unconscious skills such as blinking, walking and counting.
We share the 'mid-brain' with all mammals. It's home to the amygdala - the brain's alarm centre. When triggered it spurs us to fight, flee or freeze. To the amygdala, there's no difference between real or imagined threat.
Our scientific experiments, conducted in a range of built environments, show that overcrowding increases heart rate, noise reduces creativity and nature enhances creativity and overall performance.
By examining your current built space or future plans, we can enhance brain function, improve wellbeing and support the optimal performance of your people.
