We spend around 80-90% of their time indoors, whether that be at home, school or work. Studies have shown that poor indoor air quality has a negative impact on health, wellbeing and productivity.

‘Sick building syndrome’, a condition which is typically marked by headaches and respiratory problems, is attributed to factors in the indoor environment such as inadequate ventilation or poorly maintained air conditioning.

To help companies find out more about how to alleviate the problem, our sister Innovation Centre, Construction Scotland (CSIC) is hosting a this free event.


The event will showcase an innovative pilot project that CSIC has recently funded, which could help address the issue. In partnership with researchers from the University of Strathclyde, property technology company arnbco collected data from commercial properties in Glasgow, London and New York over the course of a year. Using those results, arnbco created a new technology that can provide real-time monitoring of the effects of the indoor working environment on health and wellbeing, taking into account factors such as ventilation, natural light and temperature.

Other speakers include CENSIS and other organisations specialising in the field of indoor air quality.
