In the latest issue of Healthcare Design (November 2015), check out this piece on the progress of our thermal comfort study. We’re researching optimal temperatures for healthcare spaces.
Thermal comfort in a healthcare environment is particularly challenging. The ideal comfort zone of patient rooms, doctors’ spaces, waiting areas and highly controlled environments do not overlap. This creates a perpetual challenge in the operation of your hospital to best meet the thermal comfort needs of all key occupants. Regardless of your geographic location or climate, finding the “sweet spot” is a challenge.
The study is underway and we’ll be sharing results in 2016.
