UKAA News Buzz 13/10/2020 – What’s your AirScore?

YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

 

 

October 8th was Clean Air Day, more than six months since the UK went into lockdown. During the summer months, people flocked to parks, beaches and al fresco dining areas. Now, as we approach the cold and flu season with ever-changing government guidance, staying home is back on the agenda. 

The quality of the air that we breathe inside our homes and offices is more important now than ever before. For the Built-to-Rent market, good indoor air quality is no longer a nice-to-have: it’s imperative.

At AirRated, we know a thing or two about indoor air quality: we even developed a certification system for it – the AirScore. An AirScore is a way to publicise the measures you’ve taken, and to reassure prospective and current residents that your buildings are as healthy as possible. 

Resident demands are changing and expectations are being redefined. For example, the desire to be outside in the fresh air during lockdown was such that outdoor space has almost become a necessity for those looking to buy, even if it’s just a balcony.  

So consumers and residents are now influencing the key decisions that landlords and developers will make, but this really isn’t something to shy away from: it’s something to embrace. 

We hope you are all staying safe and well,
 

The AirRated team
