Improving Productivity: The impact of buildings and indoor environments

Indoor environmental conditions of offices have been shown to influence productivity through both ambient conditions such as temperature and lighting, and air quality pollutants such as volatile organic compounds, particulate matters and carbon dioxide. Despite this knowledge, optimising conditions to facilitate a more productive workplace is challenging, and as yet there are no clearly defined parameters that can produce optimised conditions in a range of office environments.
