A comfortable indoor environment is critically important to ensure occupant satisfaction within a building. Environmental conditions including air temperature and movement, noise, light and air quality can dramatically affect the well-being and even productivity of a workforce within a building and should be routinely monitored and evaluated.

RHP’s team of Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIHs), public health professionals, certified safety professionals and environmental professionals have the skills and expertise to assess and evaluate your building’s indoor environmental parameters that influence occupant comfort such as:

  • Temperature (too hot/too cold)
  • Relative Humidity (too dry/too humid)
  • Odor (too fragrant/unpleasant odor)
  • Carbon Dioxide (too stuffy/stagnant)
  • Air Velocity and Direction (too drafty)

A building’s heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is the primary building system that controls the introduction of fresh air into the building, humidity levels, air velocity coming out of supply air diffusers and temperature of that air. RHP applies principles and standards established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) when conducting building evaluations of a building’s systems. Building location, geographic, topographic, and urban vs. rural as well as type of construction and building envelope characteristics are factors that should be evaluated when assessing occupant comfort.

RHP tailors services to address the specific concerns of each client through a process of gathering relevant information including interviews, data collection using state-of-the art monitoring and testing equipment and site evaluations. RHP is experienced and knowledgeable in evaluating all building types including commercial and public, industrial facilities and multi-unit residential buildings.
