GOLD NOTES

NUGGETS FROM THE WORLD OF RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal Enhances Health And Safety For American Homes

This is not a political blog. Never has been. Never will be. But sometimes politics overlaps wellness design and enhances the health and safety of our homes. This post is about one of those times!

The bipartisan infrastructure deal — officially known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act — which became law on Monday, November 15, 2021 has several components that can greatly improve our living spaces and lives. (Most of the law focuses on public projects like roads, bridges, ports, tunnels and airports.)

In my latest piece for Forbes.com, I share details about the pieces that will have an impact on where and how we live. These include the removal of lead pipes, universal access to high speed internet, cleanup of Superfund sites and a reinforced, less polluting power grid.

The latter two components definitely overlap public and private spaces, but anyone unfortunate enough to live near industrial pollution or suffer through winter weeks without heat will appreciate the improvements at home.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal has billions of dollars for improving homes.
