This paper presents the results of a field experiment made on 30 female office workers : they were investigated on their perception of environmental conditions and the intensity of the Sick Building Symptoms if any, at 3 levels of temperature and humidity, and 2 levels of ventilation rate.

The conclusion is that working conditions improved when subjects worked at slightly lower levels of air temperature and humidity.
