What is Building Biology?

Building Biology is an interdisciplinary life science integrating the holistic synergies and their interactions between all living things and their natural and built environments. It connects the study between buildings and the environment they are built in and their impact upon the health and well-being of those who occupy them.

Reducing exposure to contaminants should be part of any healthy living.

Using evidence based information and testing, Building Environmental Assessment provides you with the understanding on how to create and manage healthier indoor spaces, enhance healthy occupants and support our planet’s ecology on a global scale.

  • Indoor air pollution is one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health.1
  • People spend 90% or more of their time indoors.2
  • Concentrations of many pollutants indoors far exceed those found outdoors.3
  • Numerous new chemicals are registered for use in consumer products per day.4
  • Many technology advances have yet to be tested for their effect on human health.5
  • Occupants can improve the air quality in their buildings, often with relatively  simple measures, which should provide health benefit.6
  • Reducing exposure to contaminants should be part of any healthy living!7

Being unwell is annoying and costly

The Indoor Environmental Assessment analyses and assess the adverse health hazards in your home, work space and building in order to identify the root cause to help you understand what’s going on.

Environmental exposure assessment covers:

  • analysis of health issues of every occupant
  • your entire building inside, outside
  • the history of the building, the site
  • building materials, design
  • water damage, mould, mycotoxins
  • environmental pollutants, vehicular, allergens, dust, dust mites, pet hair & more
  • gasses, pollutants
  • moisture, ventilation, heating, cooling pathways
  • bedding, furnishing materials, clothing, toys
  • chemicals, pesticides, cleaning and personal care products
  • electrical appliances, telecommunication devices
  • drinking water
  • food packaging, kitchenware
  • and much more!

Effective protection provides welcome relief

Building Biologists consider exposure standards and best practices from around the world and adopt the Precautionary Principle. In essence they determine exactly what you need to do to create a healthy outcome for you and your loved ones. You’ll receive a comprehensive understanding of the issues in your home, your environment and the issues that are likely to be causing you and your family health problems, practical strategies and solutions, easy-to-implement action plan and most of importantly, peace of mind.
