Original title Arbeits- und Leistungsbewertung in einem GrossraumbŘro aus arbeitsmedizinischer Sicht [in German]
Bibliographic information July 1978, Vol.13, No.7, p.152-158. Illus.
Abstract Detailed account of the required conditions and technical data concerning the design and layout of a landscaped office: dimensions, floorspace, furnishing, choice of colours and light reflection measurements, artificial lighting (illumination, colour of light, colour rendering), ventilation and air conditioning (sources of air pollution in the office, minimum space per employee, air exchange rate, thermal comfort factors, recommended microclimates, measurement of microclimate), noise level and sound absorption techniques. Optimum values and data are given, and illustrated by diagrams and tables. These optimum values are compared with existing conditions in an office, where the ventilation and air conditioning did not satisfy the required conditions.
