New sick building centre to be based in Swedish capital

  • Comment

Stockholm is to be home to an international centre specialising in the study of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). The Swedish capital, which is at the forefront of research into sick buildings, is considered to be one of the leading areas for tackling the problem.

The centre is being established by Swedish consultant Carl Bro Barab, which specialises in the problems of sick buildings.

Tom Follin, a partner at Carl Bro Barab, will head up the new centre. He said: 'There is a wealth of knowledge in the research community over here and we will work closely with them. Access to research has always been an important part in our development work so we can find improved ways for examination and remedy.

Follin said the new centre will reinforce the opportunities for Carl Bro Barab to develop strategies to combat the SBS problem.

'Finding the causes and taking the proper steps to remedy them is a process requiring solid technical knowledge of construction, measurement technology, microbiology, chemistry, humidity physics and a clear investigation strategy, ' Follin added.
