The Test Criteria


46 minutes more qquality sleep per night thanks to working places with much daylight.

A good illumination is the key for the satisfaction of the residents. Experts agree that daylight and a panoramic view close to nature influences positively the productivity and the well-being.


On average 24 more productive working days per employee and year thanks to improved acoustics and less noise.

Insufficient acoustics is one of the main reasons of defects in an office context. Disturbing noises could be the reason for reduced productivity long after their disappearance. Relevant parameters for the measurement of good acoustics are: speech intelligibility, sound insulation and the arrangement of the internal noise development.

Air Quality

Up to 10% more productivity through good air quality.

A good air quality has a direct impact on health and psyche. This is influenced by proper supply of fresh air, purification of impured air and the reduction of pollutants.
A bad atmosphere is hardly visible to the naked eye. But nevertheless, the air quality has a great influence on health and productivity of building users. Reasons for that are insufficient ventilation and the evaporation of the volatile organics. (VOC-emissions) from, for example, furniture, floors, cleaning agents and construction materials.

Office Environment

A manifold working place typology supports the productivity.

A manifold working place typology supports the productivity.
The office environment influences significantly the concentration, co-operation, confidence and creativity of the building users. Decisive parameters for that are furniture, working place typology and customization possibilities.
The office equipment has a direct effect on health, mentally and physically, and the cognitive capacities of employees. The consideration of those properties of office design can contribute substantially to drive motivation and success of building users. A working environment which offers optimal conditions for employees and supports an internal feeling of cohesion can reduce illness absences, increase the productivity and consequently take care of higher returns.

Thermal Comfort

Ideal productivity can be achieved between 20⁰C and 25⁰C.

Thermal comfort is very important for the health of human-beings. Parameters for that are air temperature, radiation temperature, air humidity, air movement, clothes and the activity level.
Many studies have shown, that the perceived thermal comfort has a very important influence on the satisfaction at the working place and the productivity. The avoidance of inconvenient high and low temperatures can increase enormously the productivity.

Individual Control

Personalisation possibilities give a feeling of control to the residents.

Human-beings wish to have the feeling to keep the control about their working situation. This can be make possible in adjusting the temperature, having the possibility to open the windows, in controlling the illumination level, using flexible furniture.

Studies prove the positive influence of personal control on the productivity, motivation, group cohesiveness and working satisfaction.
