The Indoor Health and Productivity Project works toward developing a more complete understanding of the relationship between physical attributes of the workplace (such as its thermal attributes, lighting, ventilation and air quality) in non-residential and non-industrial buildings, as well as the health and productivity of their occupants.
Research addresses the following topics:
- Indoor dampness, biological contaminants and health
- Indoor volatile organic compounds and health
- Impacts of indoor environments on human performance and productivity
- Benefits of improving indoor environmental quality
- Air cleaning effects on health and perceived air quality
- Climate change, indoor environmental quality and health
