Measuring Air Quality

With air quality becoming an increasingly important factor when ensuring health and safety of workers returning to the office, we're working with our FM partner Envirotech to introduce and install air quality monitoring across our managed portfolio and our London office. Jeff Smith explains what trends we are finding!

1. How many Tandem Sites have we got air quality monitory installed?

We are monitoring 5 sites at present in central London and the midlands.

We are currently measuring

  • CO

  • CO2

  • Humidity

  • PM2.5

  • Temp

  • TVOC

And we measuring each of these to the World Health Organizations guidelines for the relevant time measurement

3. How are we measuring?

We have installed sensors linked live to LoRa network that provide data 24/7/365

4. What are the key trends you are seeing?

At present we are seeing a number of buildings that are being affected by above average Total Volatile Organic Compound (TVOC) readings.

5. What solutions are you putting in place?

We have installed portable UVc Air Purification units which deal with the effects of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) problems. As well as advising clients to look at dealing with causation with TVOC, such as changing cleaning fluids, and materials, to utilize Zero TVOC paints when refurbishing and procuring zero to low soft furnishing and fittings in their workspaces
