The Comfortmeter is the result of collaboration between international authorities involved in efficient, sustainable and performance oriented office buildings. The Comfortmeter is based on scientific research performed by 6 European Universities and Factor4. The project was supported by the European Commission.
The driving forces behind the Comfortmeter have the ambition to make this instrument the European standard for measuring comfort satisfaction in a broadly and generally scientifically accepted manner. Just as BREEAM and LEED are the accepted standards for sustainable buildings. In any event, the European Commission supports this ambition.
The Comfortmeter is a multilingual measurement instrument which is currently available in ten European languages. It can currently be offered throughout the European Union.
The Comfortmeter database currently contains data of 100 buildings. This will increase to data of 200 buildings at the end of 2017. The input of this database results in extremely valuable national and international benchmarking.
What & for whom
How does your building perform? That is what the Comfortmeter documents for you: the performance of your building(s) in respect of the most important technological criterion of success through the eyes of the daily user.
The Comfortmeter focuses on 6 subjects: lighting, acoustics, thermal comfort, office environment, quality of air and individual control.
A number of scientific studies have clearly shown that the performance capacity, job satisfaction, job enjoyment and health are directly affected by the comfort offered by the work environment. The physical well-being of employees directly impacts their productivity.
People are the best measuring instruments.
The Comfortmeter measures the performance of your building through its daily users. These are the people who will determine whether your client is ultimately satisfied. This will provide first-hand information.
