It is no surprise that the indoor built environment plays a role in our overall wellbeing – especially because of the amount of time we spend indoors. Studies show that there is an increase in cognitive scores for people who work in a green, well-ventilated office. The room temperature is also an important factor in a good work environment: the indoor thermal environment is connected to our health, wellbeing and productivity. For example, too hot office might cause a performance drop. (International WELL Building Institute: Air & Comfort, Allen et al. 2016, World Green Building Council)
At Technopolis, we put an effort in ensuring a healthy indoor air quality and thermal comfort. We closely examine these through technical monitoring, but we also regularly measure our customers’ satisfaction to the indoor air on all our campuses.
In new construction projects, we have strict targets for purity class and indoor air quality. We invest in the quality of indoor air through air volumes, filter choices, CO2 monitoring of multi-user premises and construction-time purity control. Attention is paid to the low emissions of material choices, and the thermal comfort of the premises.
