Green offices aren’t just better for the environment, but for the people that work there, too. Indoor air quality, ventilation effectiveness, and access to natural light are all areas addressed by LEED.
Daylighting: Access to natural daylight has been shown to improve worker health and productivity. All partitions in this office are 42” or lower. This allows more natural daylight penetration. In fact, 90% of all occupied spaces in this office have access to views to the outdoors.
Low-Off-Gassing Products: Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are found in many common construction and office fit-up products, such as furniture, paint, and flooring. However, unhealthy VOCs off-gas from these products – harming indoor air quality. All materials used at this office are “low-VOC.” This includes paints, sealants, adhesives, coatings, wood products, laminates, and carpet.
Green Housekeeping: This office, and the entire building, has a green housekeeping program in which EcoLogo and healthy cleaners are used to maintain superior indoor air quality.
