Investigation of the indoor environment on the university campus in Luleå

Several investigations of the buildings in the university area of Luleå have been carried out, on behalf of the property owner, Akademiska hus, due to the fact that staff staying in the premises reported health problems. Buildings erected in the 1970s have in many cases been found to have construction design faults that have had a negative impact on the indoor environment.

A special project for indoor environment and health will be carried out during 2019-2020, the purpose of which is to ensure methodology for handling and investigating health problems linked to the indoor environment in the university area of ​​Luleå.
