We Design For… are proud to be considered as one of the innovative leaders specialising in air quality within the built environment.
Our team can be credited with being one of the first to carry out detailed studies and collection of air quality data that have highlighted the non compliance issues that many buildings; particularly in our cities, face when it comes to potentially harmful particulate and pollutants being present in the spaces we live and work within; potentially harming human health.
Throughout our industry there is some misunderstanding of what defines good air quality. We are currently working with governing bodies and manufacturers to improve strategy, policy and create awareness of the baseline legal requirements that are often ignored by design, construction, maintenance and management teams.
Our clients include businesses that value the health and well-being of their staff highly. Gaining an understanding of some of the issues and exceeding basic compliance is key to such an ethos.
“Our recent studies have shown that for good indoor air quality it should no longer be viewed as acceptable to use CO2 alone as a ventilation control parameter”
Dr. Dominic Clyde Smith, UCL and Head of Research at We Design For…
We provide clear advice and solutions that improve air quality, provide the fresh air that every human should be entitled to and support the health of building occupants.
Thermal Comfort is very closely related to IAQ and the relationship is clear. Research demonstrates that thermal comfort has a significant impact on workplace satisfaction. Studies consistently show that even modest degrees of satisfactory personal control over thermal comfort can return improvements in health, well-being and productivity.
