Building Ecology – healthy environment, satisfied occupants
People in industrialized countries spend over 90 percent of their time indoors. That’s why it is important that – in addition to their protective function – buildings provide maximum comfort and safe conditions that enhance both quality of life and productivity. However, this presents engineers and architects with completely new challenges – not just because of increasing threats in the urban environment, such as air pollution.
Drees & Sommer oﬀers a wide range of building ecology services, for example in the form of individualized consultation on indoor air quality (keyword: PM 2.5). Our specialists also carry out on-site audits and develop optimization scrutiny. We also advise on the use of sustainable materials in keeping with the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) concept. In the case of established buildings, we subject the existing ventilation technology to close.
