Indoor environmental quality

Contact Research, Investigations & Test

Increased restrictions and better building techniques have produced very airtight domestic and non-domestic buildings. It is therefore important to ensure buildings are achieving the right ventilation to deal with contaminants in the space and ensure the wellbeing of occupants.

BSRIA provides services to look into ventilation problems, thermal comfort complaints and sick building syndrome:

Indoor air quality:

  • Carry out indoor air quality surveys and advise on the most likely contaminants to measure
  • Independently review the ventilation systems
  • Carry out investigations for mould and condensation problems
  • Evaluate the performance of ventilation solutions for the domestic sector including MEV and MVHR systems

Thermal comfort evaluations per Standard BS EN 7730.

  • Air temperature profiling
  • Air speed measurement
  • Draught risk (DR)
  • Operative temperature measurements
  • Humidity
  • Predicted mean vote (PMV)
  • Predicted percentage of dissatisfied (PPD)
