Up to 90% of our time is spent indoors. The quality of indoor air we breathe has direct repercussions on our wellbeing, and the outbreak of COVID19 has further underscored the importance of healthy buildings. It has reminded us all that sustainable buildings with clean indoor quality are as much about saving resources as they are about saving lives. Indoor air properties such as humidity, ventilation, temperature and filtration have a significant impact on the environment and human health and wellbeing. Recirculation of air without introducing fresh outdoor air, absence of a robust filtration system and breathing air with low humidity levels affects human respiratory system’s ability to combat infections. On the flipside, indoor spaces with better air quality can be used as a tool against the spread of infections and diseases caused by pathogens.
For businesses, ensuring good air quality through regular monitoring exercises can enhance staff’s wellbeing, level of comfort and ultimately their productivity. GORD Advisory can facilitate indoor environment monitoring for any facility. Our scope of services in this domain deals with factors related to noise levels, light levels, air temperature, humidity levels, air throw/velocity in an indoor environment and air pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, formaldehyde, total volatile organic compounds, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matters and ozone.
