The research project MY FUTURE OFFICE proves that healthier offices can be safely built, renovated and operated with good planning, stringent quality management and tested materials. Various Lindner floors, ceilings and partition systems were also successfully tested in the course of the project.

Together with Sentinel Haus Institut and the research project MY FUTURE OFFICE, the Lindner Group put the Lindner Plus Acoustic Metal partition, the Plafotherm® DS heated and chilled ceiling and the FLOOR and more® and NORTEC floor systems through their paces in an extensive test program. In a unique European reference room of Sentinel Haus Institut, the systems were examined for pollutants in various application examples. The scenarios for new construction, renovation, operation and cleaning produced good to very good emission results for the air quality in every construction methods and product combinations examined. The scientific results have now been officially published and can be viewed in the project theme world on the Sentinel website. The research results are supplemented with quality criteria for light supply, acoustics, ventilation and many more.

About the research project:

MY FUTURE OFFICE is an initiative of 18 manufacturers, planning offices and experts for healthier and sustainable buildings. The aim is to develop solutions and standards for healthier, more efficient and profitable office buildings. These should combine all relevant health and sustainability aspects. In addition to tested construction and fit-out products, these include performance-enhancing daylight and artificial light, optimal acoustics and healthier ventilation. Equipment and flexible room organisation also play an important role. Experienced parties from architecture, the real estate industry, institutes and the building materials industry actively support the project as advisory boards. The project is coordinated by the Sentinel Haus Institut in Freiburg:
