IMPROVING INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY
Green Buildings are not only about recycled content or reducing energy. Creating a pleasant and attractive environment and minimising environmental impact is a challenge faced by architects. Indoor environmental quality (IEQ) is an important aspect of such an environment. The overall well-being of a buildings occupants and their associated productivity contributes to the cost benefit of sustainable design. Furthermore workspaces which are comfortable, naturally lit and allow occupant's access to the outdoors can reduce turnover and costly absenteeism.
Faber products and solutions are designed to improve indoor environmental quality and conserve energy, supporting built environments that are comfortable, healthy, productive, and sustainable. Our engineering and production processes minimise embodied environmental impact while meeting the highest standards for commercial, hospitality, industrial, institutional, and commercial applications.
