The purpose of this paper is to explore the potential benefits of integrated modelling, simulation and visualisation (MSV) technology with a view to conceptualising a virtual built healing environment (VBHE) approach that supports sustainable built healing environments (BHEs). Through presenting an overview of BHE issues and benefits of using integrated MSV technology for solutions, this paper demonstrates the potential of using integrated MSV technology – including VBHE as a viable integrated MSV approach – in facilitating sustainable BHE design and assessment. This paper also identifies barriers to the full adoption of integrated MSV technology, and proffers ways of overcoming such barriers.
