Property Managers – Pro-active monitoring can act as an effective communications tool to enhance relations with tenants and prevent indoor air quality complaints at the outset. It can help to attract new tenants. Also, new lease agreements increasingly include statements on air quality and overall building performance. Tenants can break their existing lease if poor air quality adversely affects their staff.
- Owner / Occupants – Staff losses, absenteeism and low productivity directly impact the bottom line of any business. Frequently these losses can be reversed.
- Architects – Pre-construction consultation avoids faults in design. Pre-occupation inspections improve quality and integrity of workmanship and on-going monitoring proves attainment of relevant specifications.
- Banks – Banks and mortgagee companies incur a loss when building owners and developers default on loans due to indoor air pollution litigation and liability against them.
- Insurance Companies – Insurance companies are forced to pay court settlements and legal fees for employees whose illnesses are caused by sick buildings.
- Hospitals – Cross infection problems, which are common in hospitals, increasingly are being traced to contamination or blockages in ventilation ducts.
- Others – Schools, colleges, universities and diverse government agencies will find value in having their buildings tested on a regular basis for similar reasons to those noted above.
