||Challenges for indoor environment research in the new office
||Dec. 1999, Vol.25, No.6, p.574-579. Illus. 33 ref.
||This paper discusses new directions for indoor environment research for the following four themes: the current change in office work patterns, workplace design and increasing demands on the work force; the large individual variations in requirements for optimal conditions pointing at the key factors of individual response; psychosocial factors as determinants of symptoms, comfort, and productivity; and measures of transient, non-specific symptoms in the indoor environment (sick-building syndrome) and identification of its causes.
