The integrated nature of our performance analysis modelling ensures that internal comfort conditions can be considered and optimised as part of your energy reduction strategy. Such an approach stops un-intended comfort issues occurring when energy improvements are made as our technology can consider the building as a whole system, taking into account the many interactions that occur.
We also offer you a tangible response to comfort complaints, enabling you to investigate what’s really going on and come up with solutions you can have confidence will address the issue, rather than having to rely on educated guesses. Such comfort issues can also be an indicator of where energy and cost savings can be made, and be worthy of further investigation.
The vision of Health and Wellbeing, whether through the new WELL building standard or other standards and systems is the long-term facilitation of productive and comfortable environments for the building occupant. Well-designed and operated environments should inspire conscious and subconscious positive lifestyle choices, resulting in healthier, more productive building users, which take fewer sick days. However, it can also help in staff retention and in the case of schools and museums, there are a number of standards that need to be complied with.
Performance simulation is a practical instrument that can demonstrate the tangible benefits of health and wellbeing application, and help ensure key criteria around indoor air quality, thermal comfort, ventilation, lighting and humidity control are achieved.
