You Can’t Improve What You Can’t Measure: Why Technology Plays a Big Role in Occupant Wellbeing

As employees return to the office, building confidence in the spaces they inhabit is a crucial driver of the future of the workplace. It’s hard for employees to be productive if they’re constantly worried about the surrounding environment.

There has been a lot of discussions about HVAC systems, filtration and recommended measures in buildings that help improve overall air quality and mitigate the spread of viruses. But how can owners and operators promote transparency and share the positive measures they have taken toward improving indoor health and wellness?

From sensors and edge devices, to dashboards AND intelligent building platforms, technology can help measure and monitor indoor air quality, providing both operators and occupants valuable insights into the improvement initiatives they are undertaking.

Our mission is Improving Society Through the Built Environment, and we have been actively exploring solutions that help achieve that mission. Amid this pandemic, we are helping clients define their use cases, navigate what’s possible to achieve their objectives, evaluate the plethora of solution offerings, and select what’s practical for their immediate and long-term needs.
