CASE STUDY

A BANK NEEDED SOMEONE TO CLEAR THE AIR

Concerns over indoor air quality and in particular unusual odours within a commercial bank were reported to Clearwater to investigate.

 

OUTLINE

The client was not only concerned about odours creating an uncomfortable working environment, but also if the situation would impact on the health of their staff or the general public.

 

SOLUTION

Clearwater Technology worked closely with the bank personnel via their facilities management company, and attended the site the next day prior to the bank opening to the public to undertake a suite of Indoor Air Quality assessments which tested for parameters including temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, airborne particulates and airborne micro organisms.

  • The parameters immediately indicated satisfactory air quality with results recorded being within Charted Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) guidelines.
  • Clearwater Technology noted external and internal factors that may have caused these intermittent odours.

 

CONCLUSION

A full report was submitted to the client detailing results, and a summary of findings and recommendations.

  • This enabled the bank to demonstrate that the air quality in the working environment was suitable for their staff and the general public.

Further to this the bank were able to investigate cleaning materials used to eliminate their possible impact on the working environment.
