The Height of Comfort

In the UK we have longer working hours than any other country in the EU. The research has found that Britons spend an average of 42 hours and 18 minutes a week at work, compared to 40 hours and 24 minutes in Germany, and just 39 hours in France.

We are spending a vast majority of our time at work, in an office space or a similar building, so we need to make it comfortable for all occupants.

For the last few years, we have been concentrating on making buildings green and focusing on energy efficiency, but the health and wellbeing of occupants is now coming into focus. Building controls can play an important role in improving environmental conditions of employees as well as providing the much needed energy savings building owners and developers require.
