We spend between 80 and 90% of our time inside buildings and today we are fully aware of the risks that breathing in a contaminated indoor environment entails (up to 90 times more toxic than outdoor air).
Present society reacts to aggravating factors such as the growing climate change and our own behaviour towards the environment, being increasingly strict and demanding higher quality of life standards. For this purpose, the architecture is constantly evolving to meet these requirements while adapting to mandatory regulations such as the RITE (Regulation of Thermal Installations in Buildings in Spain) related to indoor air quality, ventilation, filtration and energy savings.
The creation of international standards such as WELL, LEED, BREEAM, GREEN, PASSIVHAUS, NET ZERO ENERGY BLDG, LIVING BLDG CHALLENGE, etc. pursue the creation of sustainable spaces through a better energy efficiency, greater economic savings and at the same time a more ecological and healthy environment for people.
