OfficeVitae provides a unique and integrated approach to gain real time insights into office and occupant Health & Vitality. The OfficeVitae vitality platform – developed with leading scientists at the Technical University of Delft and supported by Climate-KIC BTA – combines Smart Indoor Environment Sensors with Office Occupant Self-Reporting. All of this is translated into a daily Office Vitality Index, that can be used as a benchmark for offices and as a KPI for further improvements.
Research and employee satisfaction surveys show there are serious complaints in offices, especially about indoor air climate, noise and office design. An unhealthy work environment causes poor concentration, lower productivity and higher sickness rates. On top of this it is proven that most building management systems are not operating efficiently due to incorrect settings and are not responding effectively to occupants needs. Using data coming from the workspace level, OfficeVitae can solve these problems and save energy up to 20%!
Together with carefully selected partners – in building management systems, office furniture, facility management and vitality coaching -, OfficeVitae not only helps offices to become healthier and more sustainable workplaces, but also help the occupants to become more activated, happier and fitter.
Clear results are: energy savings, optimisation, increased employee vitality, lower sickness rates, less stress and burnouts, which leads to better individual and company performance.
OfficeVitae is a spin-out of the TU Delft, and is an extension of a 3 year research project done at the Faculty of Industrial Design. Professor David Keyson headed this research project aiming at the development of sensortechnology for measuring indoor air climate in homes and offices.
