Health is the new Barometer

Demand for living in the centre of the world's most cosmopolitan cities has not diminished, with developers having to adapt and respond to changing dynamics

The new barometer of luxury is 'health' and that means the air in The Bryanston is free from pollutants, toxins, and other harmful events

A global benchmark for indoor air quality

Air quality in the workplace can cause up to an 11% reduction in productivity due to elevated levels of CO2, so it is not surprising that residential developers are focusing on health, as up to 90% of our time can be spent indoors.

The development is the first luxury residential scheme to undertake and receive an AirScore Gold Rating

AirScore: An AirScore is a simple and reliable measure for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in the built environment. The latest sensor technology is used to monitor five key parameters for IAQ. IAQ: Humidity, Temperature, PM2.5, TVOCs and Carbon Dioxide.

The process is highly rigorous and long-winded-taking a full 12 months to attain the certification. This gives the building the full health benefits for buyers having an increasing emphasis on wellness.

This is followed by a three-week monitoring period, an AirScore is determined to give an industry-leading analysis of the building's indoor health.

Five Fundamental Parameters


Humidity directly affects occupant health and comfort

Low humidity causes eyes and skin to become irritated and increases the risk of developing common colds, flu, and viruses.

High humidity can impact feelings of lethargy and exacerbate allergies


Poor thermal comfort can contribute to sickness

Building Syndrome (SBS) symptoms, which include headaches, itchy skin, dry or sore eyes, blocked or running noses and rashes


Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM2.5) is defined as fine particulate matter with a diameter less than 2.5 μm.

High levels of short-term exposure can cause irritation of the airways, coughing and cardiovascular problems. Long-term exposure can have more serious effects.


VOCs comprise a wide range of chemicals, which may be emitted over periods of weeks or years from construction and furnishing products.

There is association between higher concentrations of VOCs in indoor air with allergies, asthma, and poor respiratory health.

Carbon Dioxide

Indoor CO2 sources are human and animal respiration and combustion.

Occupied indoor concentrations of CO2 are significantly higher than outdoor.
