A building and its environment can help people to produce better work because they are happier when their minds are concentrated on the job in hand and building design can help this to be achieved. Boredom and lassitude, or anxiety and druginduced mental states represent two ends of a spectrum which counter the optimum balance point of this attention or arousal level continuum. At low and high arousal levels the capacity for performing the work task is low: at the optimum level the individual can concentrate on the work task while being aware of the peripheral stimuli from the physical environment.

People expect their surroundings to allow them to pursue their work activity unhindered. The task of the environmental engineer and the architect is to create environments which are acceptable to most of the people living inside buildings, but to allow us much individual control as possible. Specifying Indoor Climate Data 37 2 Background Standards aim to set acceptable conditions for various combinations of circumstances. A broader level of understanding is needed when interpreting the word acceptable so as to reflect not only the scientific basis of environmental specification but also cultural and social aspects [117].

Judgements converge at extreme conditions, but in between these extremes the body is tolerant to a wide range of change. In critical situations this neutral range is smaller. Culture involves a mixture of aspects covering acclimatization, expectancies and environment of a particular region. In the USA for example, office workers will often tolerate higher sound levels than in Europe. Aspects of dress, eating and drinking also affect how the human system responds to the environment. Specifying Indoor Climate Data 39 3 Present standards The basis of the proposed European standard on indoor climate (pr ENV 1752 Ventilation for Buildings; Design Criteria for the Indoor Environment) is based on the work of Fanger originally set out in his book entitled Thermal Comfort Analysis and Applications in Environmental Engineering published by McGraw Hill in 1970.
