Better awareness on health and pollution
For monitoring health and pollution on the site, there or sensors available that monitor a load of interesting aspects like light, temperature, humidity, pressure. But also sound for noise disturbance, gasses (carbon monoxide CO, nitrogen NO2, ethanol, hydrogen, ammonia, methane, propane, isobutane) and particulate matter (0,3 micrometer dust particles). This monitoring will not only benefit the health safety of workers on site but will also benefit awareness on air quality. This is an aspect that durability assessment tools as BREEAM focus on as well. Moreover the monitoring of the presence of inflammable gasses mitigates high risk building methods.
So there are lots of innovations going on which can benefit the manufacturing sector. At Living Tomorrow we will look deeper into this innovations and see which role they can play for the buildings of tomorrow.
