Cundall has been selected as a Sustainable Build Innovator 2019 for the Great Indoor Life Sustainable Build Innovation Challenge for our productivity mapping tool.
Sustainable Build is a collaboration between Pension Denmark, Central Region Denmark, Henning Larsen Architects, NCC and Tarkett. The group was created in close collaboration with various actors from the building industry such as manufacturers, suppliers, builders, architects, knowledge institutions and government organisations. The purpose of Sustainable Build is to create growth in sustainable buildings and strengthen the competitiveness of sustainable solutions, scale new sustainable products and business models through cross-industry collaboration.
The Great Indoor Life Sustainable Build Innovation Challenge seeks projects and innovations that will help create the great indoor life, both in renovating existing buildings as well as in designing, building and operating future buildings.
This challenge will enable us to develop our productivity mapping tool which quantifies how indoor environmental quality (IEQ) supports occupant productivity and helps optimise it. Data on temperature, CO2 and daylight is gathered to aggregate the loss of productivity within an office. A 1% improvement in staff productivity can equate to savings of hundreds of thousands or in some cases millions of Euros for a business.
“This is a great opportunity for us to share what we hope will be an industry changing innovation”; Simon Wyatt, Partner explains, “We have developed a productivity mapping tool based on recent studies from Harvard and Oxford Brookes universities, which quantifies how indoor environmental quality, such as temperature, CO2 levels and daylight supports occupant productivity and helps optimise it. We are already applying it to projects and are excited by the findings and their implications.”
Simon Wyatt attended the Sustainable Build innovation programme and Accelerator Forum in Denmark which took place in April 2019 where he presented Cundall’s innovation on productivity mapping. You can also view the innovations that were presented during the forum here.
