Previous Air Quality Award winners include Nomura, the Greater London Authority and Inmidtown (a business representing over 300 business in central London).
Experts from the B&ES' Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Action Group, and Kings College London will judge the caterogy entries. IAQ chairman, Giuseppe Borgese said:
“A building should be a haven from harmful outside air – but many building managers don’t take the necessary steps to protect occupants from the effects of outdoor air pollutants entering the building.
“Poorly maintained ventilation systems, clogged or missing filters, dirty ductwork and ageing and inefficient air conditioning systems are all contributing to a huge health and well-being problem.
“It is such concerns that have prompted B&ES to involve itself in the National Sustainable Cities Awards in general and the Air Quality category in particular.”
