Indoor Climate in Open Plan Offices (English)
The current climate changes causes challenges when it comes to energy efficient solutions. Scania has the ambition to half the used energy per produced unit to the year 2020, with the base line year of 2010. There are a number of projects aiming to help fulfil this goal and one of them are this thesis work. A common solution to save space when hiring new employees is to knock down the walls in cell offices and create open plan offices where more people than before can share the space. This can however cause some dissatisfaction with the inhabitants as the climate systems are seldom taken into account when redesigning. This project aims to map the current indoor climate in open plan offices and suggest improvements that will increase the satisfaction as well as minimize the energy usage. The project has been carried out through a case study where mapping of climate systems, fault reports and satisfaction of the indoor climate. The results uncovers possibilities to both increase the satisfaction and at the same time decrease energy usage.
