Buildings often have problems associated with insufficient air renewal, issues with the filtration system and inadequate maintenance of the air distribution and treatment systems. The occupants then begin feeling unwell at work – a syndrome known as the "Sick Building Syndrome".
Poor indoor air quality can be at the root of a number of different problems. In office buildings, it can lead to a fall in individual productivity, and even absenteeism.
In recreational buildings such as concert halls or cinemas, unclean air can result in lower audiences and consequently a fall in turnover. Finally, in a hospital environment, stale air poses the risk of nosocomial infection with serious legal, reputational, and financial consequences. Indoor air quality is therefore a major health security issue for hospital and clinic managers.

A customized indoor air treatment solution
Minimizing the level of risk to health
Veolia innovates in microbial control
Microbial controls in hospitals are currently performed in essentially a "static" way and mainly in operating theatres. Veolia innovates by developing "continuous" control strategies. When under constant observation, the risk of microbial contamination of the air is considerably reduced.
They chose this solution
The Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) in Canada was created in 1996 when three establishments merged. Under a broad-based energy performance contract, Veolia was selected to support the CHUM migration to a single site in 2016. Air quality issues were an integral part of this mission including the design, assistance, operation, and risk management aspects.
Société Générale asked Veolia to study the indoor air quality in its historic head office and its Paris branches (30 sites). Thanks to the action plan that was rolled out, Société Générale was able to comply with the best air quality standards and offer its customers and employees optimum comfort - while also increasing the transparency and traceability of the company’s energy systems.
Gaumont called on Veolia to provide for the well-being of more than 80,000 people per year and guarantee high health and safety standards in its new cinemas in Lyon and Caen (France). Thanks to the optimization of the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) settings and continuous control of temperature, humidity, CO2 and particulate levels, Veolia was able to guarantee Gaumont enjoys reliable and optimal indoor air quality.
