Indoor air quality is particularly important for human comfort and health. Indoor air quality is influenced by many factors including building materials, smoking, cleaning products, air ventilation systems, etc. The evaluation of indoor air quality and the identification of potential problem sources is performed through in-situ auditing of the building’s main characteristics that could affect the indoor air quality (outdoor air quality and outdoor pollution sources, ventilation systems, indoor pollution sources) and measurement of specific parameters that can influence indoor air quality conditions in a building. The results of these measurements are compared to European and international standards (LEED, BREAAM, Well).
We have implemented more than 120 indoor air quality audit, measurement and assessment projects, including the identification of possible problems, in buildings of various uses (office buildings, hotels, hospitals, residences and commercial activities). Measurements are performed following international standards and methods covering the requirements of LEED and Well standards.
The measurements performed include parameters indicative of the indoor air quality conditions:
- volatile organic compounds, CO2, particulates, CO, ozone, formaldehyde
- temperature, relative humidity, air velocity, lighting
- legionnela, mould, bacteria, etc.
