Building Biology Health checks for buildings

Are you concerned that your home or office may be making you sick?

Or do you wish to experience :

  • improved comfort, health and wellbeing e.g. better sleep patterns and energy levels and reduced incidence of allergies, asthma, headaches and other chronic health conditions?
  • relief from the symptoms of sick building syndrome?
  •  increased creativity and productivity?




We have been able to help both families and businesses improve the health of their indoor environments (read our case studies to see how)


A story about our work hss been published in "The Age" in Melbourne, as well as in newspapers in New South Wales and Queensland. Writer Kate Robertson accompanied our Director, Marianne Baker, during a home assessment to get an understanding of how we can help people to create healthier indoor environments. Since this article was written, we have relocated to southeast Queensland and no longer conduct assessments in Melbourne.

Hint of the Week
  • Insulation materials supporting indoor air quality
    To reduce exposure to irritating particles, insulate buildings with products such as wool/polyester rather than mineral wools. The mineral products consist of fibres which are like fine needles when they break off. Such particles may irritate skin and mucous membranes.
