Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the demand for ways of measuring the effectiveness of the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). There is ever more increasing pressure across commercial real estate – be it landlords, tenant occupiers, universities or public buildings – to demonstrate suitable environments that include COVID-19 preventative measures, incorporating air ventilation & purification strategies. Coupled with the ongoing research and court cases demonstrating a direct link between toxic air and early death, there is a growing demand for ongoing live data of air quality in cities, which is now filtering down to the actual workplace environments themselves.
The green agenda is now a high priority for many countries, governments and commercial business and is having a direct impact on asset managers investment and management strategies across their building portfolios. This has brought with it a focus on wellness and air quality of working environments in such buildings.
Guidance has been provided by UK HSE – Health & Safety Executive on their website, while industry bodies such as CIBSE and BESA have advised on ventilation and the effective following of government guidelines.
The Envirotech Group is utilising its considerable experience to help our clients to address this, and to make effective decisions to rectify issues. It is clear that being able to continuously measure and monitor the environmental conditions within the building in relation to acceptable industry levels is paramount.
EnvirotechwellSPACE, as an early adopter of IoT (Internet of Things) products, has worked in partnership with several companies to roll out our affordable, flexible, and portable environmental quality measurement and analytic tools developed with cutting edge technologies.
