During the course of the international research project “Quantum – Quality Management for Building Performance” an online survey will analyse the performance of comfort of 120 buildings across Europe.
Be part of this global analysis and examine your building!
Using the online-tool “Comfortmeter”, an online survey will be created, specifically adapted for use in your building. The survey covers all comfort-related topics, over 55 questions, relating to room air temperature, air quality, noise, odour, etc. Any participating company or public institution can utilize the survey providing they have a minimum of 30 employees. After completing the survey, a user-anonymised, statistical evaluation regarding the performance of factors affecting user comfort will be provided. The evaluation will contain detailed analysis and practical advice to create a healthier workplace environment for your employees. In addition, the report will include a comparative analysis of your building against other similar, analysed buildings.
The survey does not require an on-site visit or any program installation on users’ computers. The Comfortmeter analysis can be completed via a standard web-browser.Surveys that fit within the scientific research within Quantum will be realised at a reduced cost.
