SUMMARY:
HSBC Metroplan Nangang Office involved the successful consolidation of 1300 staff from 4 different buildings into one new office comprised of 113,000 SF across 8 floors. Upon completing this LEED for Commercials Interiors project, under HSBC's request, Steven Leach conducted detailed IAQ testing performed by SGS. Following the methods stipulated in the Taiwan Indoor Air Quality Management Act, air samples were taken from 32 control points throughout the tenant space. The results showed significant reduction of PM2.5, PM10, formaldehyde, TVOC, and fungi. Average readings within the HSBC Metroplan Nangang Offices indicated air quality surpasses the standard requirements by 79%.

Steven Leach's robust indoor air quality management program is proven to provide our clients with optimal indoor air quality. Through the thoughtful implementation of proven, multi-faceted strategies, we provide a measurably healthier interior environment.
