Abstract

The objectives of this investigation seek to address the potential vulnerability and productivity levels of health care providers due to indoor air quality (IAQ) impacts and building performance in new and existing hospitals in Singapore. While there are many other types of green facilities that address sustainability agenda, this research focus on hospitals because they provide the working environment and needs for majority of health care workers. This study seek to provide more data on hospital IAQ as well as health workers' concerns to ensure that future new and remodelled hospitals are designed and managed to address productivity and sustainability demands posed by global environmental concerns.
