Many employees spend a large percentage of their daily time in their office environment. Ensuring they are comfortable can reap the multiple benefits of employee satisfaction, loyalty and enhanced performance, as well as reduce complaints to premises and facilities managers.
Our team of consultants has a wide range of experience in dealing with workplace comfort issues across a variety of buildings.
We accurately measure and report on performance, and look more broadly at how building services can affect the results, for example the overlaps with DSE, air quality, and other compliance / occupier issues. The outcome is you know exactly how you are performing and where, if at all, you need to be investing to make improvements.
Our independent, quality assured, workplace comfort assessment can support you with:
- Temperature and relative humidity profiling
- Airflow velocity testing
- Noise checks
- Noise risk assessments
- Light level appraisals
Our consultants can also advise you on the use of our online compliance management solution Assurity Plus to view real-time progress of your allocated actions, simplify the way you work, demonstrate greater compliance control, have useable management reporting and enhanced visibility of risks.
If concerns with occupancy comfort were easily solved, they wouldn’t raise the problems they so often do. For example issues with ambient air temperature could be the result of poor building control, bad design, building orientation, poor space planning, high humidity or a combination of any of the above.
Factor into this the additional influence of airflow, and occupation levels, which may be compounded by noise levels and lighting, and it becomes increasingly complex to identify the real cause. Without an accurate analysis of the building you may only ever manage the symptoms.
