Poor indoor air quality – 90% of our time is spent indoors where the air often contains 2-5 times the pollutants of outdoor air (US EPA). Studies show that a green building can have a significant impact on occupants’ productivity and cognitive performance. Optimising ventilation enhances health and helps drive core business outcomes. Organisations are increasingly looking to healthy buildings to help attract and retain tenants, employees and students.
This solution was sourced in response to one of UKGBC’s past challenges on ‘Linking Building Occupancy to Energy Use’.
Bristol Community College was the first net zero lab in the USA. Aircuity’s solution helped Bristol Community College achieve net zero while enhancing safety in the lab. Aircuity enabled the reduction of air change rates, optimised the amount of fresh air ventilation in the labs and enhanced the overall environment for staff and students. Aircuity is also in half a dozen net zero energy k-12 schools.
