In a building, nothing is as important as its users. People should feel comfortable in a healthy environment to be able to feel and perform at their best. The experience of the indoor environment plays an important role in the productivity of office workers. In order to get insight in the experience of building occupants with the indoor environment, bba has set up the Healthy Building Index tool. Using this online tool, the satisfaction of building occupants with the indoor environment can be mapped easily and quickly. Questions include the themes thermal comfort, indoor air quality, noise and light. Furthermore, a checklist on the building characteristics will be filled out by the facility manager.
Based on the outcomes, risk factors will be named. Moreover, general recommendations will be given to improve the indoor environment. The tool can be used to periodically make an inventory of the satisfaction with the indoor environment, before or after renovation or after a move.
