Mass General, Lunder Building


Healthcare facilities are moving to a new philosophy of fostering wellness by providing a natural-feeling environment to promote patient healing. To achieve this goal, Plyboo edge grain amber bamboo plywood was selected to create a warm, soothing element in the design.

Plyboo was used extensively in the patient recovery rooms, waiting and reception areas as a wall treatment and for shelving and storage units. Durability, indoor air quality and sustainability were key factors in the selection of the material. FSC-certified bamboo and formaldehyde-free adhesives were also important contributors to this LEED Gold building.
