Within the commercial sector, our survey covers core operational hours (10:00 to 16:00 Monday to Friday) to give a realistic and meaningful representation of your space.
Air quality is becoming an increasing concern for companies, employees and the government.
By giving your building an AirScore you can benefit from higher rental premiums, future-proofing against policy changes and generate PR on a highly topical issue.

This statistic highlights how fundamental Indoor Air Quality really is.
An AirScore increases the value of your building, and shows that you prioritise the health and wellbeing of your occupants.
An extensive survey performed by the World Green Building Council in 2018 reported that ‘Healthy’ buildings are worth at least 7% more than standard ones.
For residential buildings our environmental survey monitors data for 24 hours, every day of the week, to provide the most relevant assessment of your space.
Children are particularly vulnerable to poor Indoor Air Quality.
Around 42% of all pupils attend schools in areas which breach PM2.5 limits and 3.7 million pupils are exposed to high levels of pollution on a daily basis.
This can have an adverse impact on lung development, brain development and lead to asthma, obesity and diabetes.
Exposure to air pollution during the school day also leads to a significant reduction in cognitive performance and can potentially lead to sleeping difficulties.
Improving air quality can have a huge impact on both the health and productivity of pupils.
Our public sector survey is adapted on a situational basis to ensure that your AirScore provides an accurate representation of your space.
With over 5 million people employed in the public sector, staff health and wellbeing is vital. By achieving an AirScore, you can ensure that your building meets air quality standards.
The UK government has been urged to adopt the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) exposure limits for the main pollutants and implement a ‘Workplace Exposure Limit’ for outdoor workers.
In January 2020, the British Engineering Services Association (BESA) called for the UK government to bring in new legislation to make measuring and monitoring Indoor Air Quality in buildings mandatory.
