Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and Productivity in Workplaces/ Achievement in Schools
Module 14 – Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and Productivity in Workplaces/ Achievement in Schools
The purpose of this guide is to inform building designers, managers, operators, educational authorities, employers, occupants and visitors about indoor environmental quality (IEQ), in relation to well-being, students’ achievement in educational settings, and workers’ productivity.
This guide is written in the context of: 1) mounting challenges resulting from extremes in weather, as designers, operations managers and others aim to improve both energy efficiency and resilience of buildings; 2) rapid advances in technology and practices to monitor and control building operations and IEQ; and 3) adaptations in response to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, and to reduce contagion in the built environment.
This module examines a broad range of studies on factors affecting resilience and efficiencies as they intersect with IEQ, and in turn the effects of IEQ on well-being, achievement and productivity in educational institution settings and workplaces.
