What is so important about

indoor environmental quality

Indoor environmental quality (IEQ) refers to the performance of a building from the occupants’ perspective and includes instrumental measurements and occupants’ perception of acoustics, lighting, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, health and productivity.

ACOUSTICS

LIGHTING

AIR QUALITY

We know that IEQ is confusing, but it’s too important to ignore. We are here to help you understand the complex science behind it and give you the evidence you need for practical solutions. Our research tools and expertise will help you understand your building and optimise occupants’ health, comfort and productivity.

We have the resources to

make IEQ accessible

lab based infrastructure prepared to accommodate proof-of-concept and in-depth IEQ related research questions or agendas

web-based survey tools to deliver and analyse post-occupancy evaluations (POE) of the subjective dimension of occupant satisfaction with building IEQ

state-of-the-art hardware solutions that provide high resolution measurements of IEQ parameters to describe the objective dimension of building IEQ
