Every office knows the afternoon slump. Employee eyes glaze over as they find themselves stuck reading the same line of an email. A yawn spreads contagiously around the room. A small crowd gathers around the snack table. If your office had a nap room, you know it would be full.

Maybe it's just fatigue – but it's likely to be something more, especially in an older building. Commercial buildings are notorious for trapping CO2 and VOCs, which can cause lethargy, headaches, nausea, flu-like symptoms and reduced cognitive abilities. In a room full of people, these compounds build up throughout the day, causing the dreaded afternoon slump. Learn how you can use your commercial building to combat them!

There has been a fundamental shift in the design and operations of office buildings over the past decade; from being places that will please investors to spaces that prioritize the needs and desires of their tenants.

5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your Building

By Sarah Baker on Nov 29, 2018 9:07:40 AM

So what can you do about it?

Although a company curfew and extra caffeinated coffee could be the solution for a few, it may not solve the overarching issue. Why?

Your building could be working harder for your occupants. The Occupant Experience (OE) is a key measure of building performance, creating multiple benefits for building tenants and owners alike, especially when combined with Operational Efficiencies (OE) to yield what we call OE2 . Your commercial building can improve productivity, health & comfort with smart zone control of temperature, air quality and lighting to suit occupant preferences and workflows.
