In addition it is aimed also at architects, contractors, local authorities and all those with the ability to influence the design, layout and provision of safe and comfortable indoor environment.

People in Europe spend 90% of their time indoors, so buildings need to be comfortable. Uncomfortable buildings have major impacts on the well-being of its occupants. A highly important comfort factor in the design of a building is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
