Development of Subjective Evaluation Tool of Work Environment for Office Workers' Work Performance and Health Promotion | 2019 | English | 10 pp
Buildings typically are expected to provide their inhabitants with the opportunity to influence the indoor environment using various control devices. These include, for example, windows, luminaires, radiators, and shading elements.
Indoor carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have been used for decades to evaluate indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation.
Trade-offs between ventilation rates and formaldehyde concentrations in new-build dwellings in the UK | 2019 | English | 11 pp
The current policies and regulatory frameworks in the construction sector aim to improve energy efficiency of new buildings whilst maintaining acceptable level of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) including indoor air quality (IAQ).
Modeling Dynamic Behavior of Volatile Organic Compounds in a Zero Energy Building | 2019 | English | 11 pp
With increasing building airtightness, the design of an adequate ventilation system gains importance.
Various studies show a deterioration in indoor air quality after renovation and energy saving measures.
Better implementation of ventilative cooling (cooling of buildings using outside air as main source) in national building standards, legislation and compliance tools | 2019 | English | 3 pp
Low energy buildings are highly insulated and airtight and therefore subject to overheating risks, where Ventilative cooling (VC) might be a relevant solution.
The current development in building energy efficiency towards nearly-zero energy buildings (nZEB) represents a number of new challenges to design and construction.
