Abstract

Cundall’s London office is the First WELL certificated building in Europe. Whether indoor air quality (IAQ) and thermal comfort satisfies occupants’ requirements and meets the WELL standard requires investigation. Based on ASHRAE Performance Measurement Protocols for Commercial Buildings (PMP), including indoor air quality monitoring combined with a Building Utilization Survey (BUS) based survey, this study investigates this question. Monitoring using Cundall’s sensors (IEQube) measuring temperature, relative humidity, light, CO2, PM2.5, PM10 and TVOC were combined with sensors from UCL to provide objective independent data for comparison. The BUS survey was conducted in the main open-plan office area to obtain the occupant’s perceptions of the environment. Monitoring results show IAQ is within the standard whilst results from the BUS questionnaire indicates most occupants are satisfied. Comments from the survey are useful to help continuing to improve the working environment.
