Heating, Ventilation, Air-Con and Lighting
Indoor Air Quality has been proven to be 2-10 times more polluted than outdoor air, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), and this statistic is believed to be more severe in less developed countries, leading to increased health problems such as asthma, headaches and allergy attacks.
In the MENA region where the climate has such a significant impact on the amount of time people spend indoors it is vital the air-conditioning, ventilation and lighting in these indoor environments will not be detrimental to our health.
