Healthy Buildings are buildings, in which the indoor environment is healthy for people to live in and carry out their activities. Good air quality, a lighting design adapted to the needs of the occupants, sufficient access to daylight and views and an adequate ventilation are important for creating a healthy indoor environment. Thermal comfort, indoor air quality, moisture, dust and pests, water quality, noise, as well as safety and security are also considered as aspects that must be considered in the context of any healthy building.

- Know it's safer - Transparent buildings make confident occupants
- Keep it safer - Integrated buildings protect occupants and ROI
Increased fresh air with ventilation
Improve indoor air quality: Proper air exchange can dispel odours, chemicals and CO2, while balancing energy use.
Get the humidity right
Hit your humidity target: 40-60%. In that range, you'll decrease exposure to particles and improve occupant comfort.
Keep temperatures comfortable
The right temperatures improve wellbeing as well as confidence and productivity. Catch issues before people notice with mobile data and alerts.
Improve your filtration
Effective filtration is essential for air quality: From pollutants to microbes, reduce particles in recirculated and outdoor air.
Give your people confidence
Give occupants confidence using air quality, social distancing and other data.
Proactively support social distancing
The right sensors and analysis can precisely monitor when and how your site is used - and then guide people to the free spaces they need.
Use pressure to control airflow
Isolate parts of a building using pressure control. This also helps prevent pathogens from entering specific areas.
Smart monitoring beyond security
Your security system can track other safety concerns like risky activity and behaviours. Get alerted when optimal conditions aren't being met.
So, what is a healthy building
A healthy building environment helps people and businesses get back to work, reassures occupants that a space is safer and complies with new guidance.
Because we understand how buildings should operate and as part of your extended SBC family, we can offer advice on how best to utilise your BEMS to meet your site requirements; and to ensure you comply with the industry guidelines issued by REHVA and CIBSE.
