The challenges of air quality for building managers are multiple: occupant health, energy efficiency, attractiveness (especially for shopping centers) or protection of estate against various degrading risks such as humidity.
For managers of public access buildings in particular, taking action against indoor air pollution is a crucial issue, especially to protect the most sensitive populations, such as children, the elderly, people at risk, etc
What are your main challenges?
- Protecting the health of occupants / visitors, and especially the most fragile (children in schools)
- Improved staff well-being at work
- Reinforced physical and mental capacities (cognitive stimulation for students at school, performance for athletes ...)
- A response to societal issues related to air quality
- Optimized operation of air treatment facilities, either by improving existing facilities or by installing new equipment
- Regulatory compliance or anticipation of future standards governing indoor air quality
- Optimized energy consumption, thanks to latest generation equipment
- Obtaining certifications by monitoring and / or treating indoor air quality
- Compliance with and even anticipation of air quality standards, in particular those of the World Health Organisation
The city of Le Raincy | Le Raincy, France
Context / Client Challenges
The indoor air quality issue in schools has become a major health concern, whether for municipalities or for the students’ parents. In order to meet growing societal and regulatory expectations, the town of Le Raincy called on Veolia to supply good air quality to two of its elementary schools that welcome nearly 600 pupils.
Veolia has therefore deployed the three components of its Air Quality Solutions offer within these establishments. After conducting an audit, the Veolia teams installed latest generation sensors to monitor and measure several parameters in real time, including carbon dioxide (CO2) and fine particles. To provide air of good quality and adapt to regulatory values or thresholds recommended by the World Health Organization, filtration and air renewal equipment have been installed. These devices also meet the challenges of energy performance. Veolia also offers information transparency for data collected on pollutants in classrooms by providing a dashboard. In addition, the Group shares best practices on air quality with teachers and children by using educational tools.
This solution creates a health framework that protects health and stimulates the children's cognitive performance. It also allows regulatory compliance in terms of air quality, and enhances the city Le Raincy’s heritage.
