D4.7: Deployment of Comfort Eye
technology for IEQ monitoring
P2Endure is a European research project funded under the EU program H2020-EE-2016-PPP (supporting
accelerated and cost-effective deep renovation of buildings through Public-Private Partnerships (EEB
PPP). The project aims to improve the availability and performance of energy saving solutions for deep
renovation and transformation of vacant, obsolete or sub-optimal public buildings into dwellings,
promoting evidence-based innovative solutions for deep renovation based on prefabricated Plug and Play systems in combination with on-site robotic 3D-printing and BIM demonstrated; monitored at 11 real
projects, 2 virtual demonstrators in 4 geo-clusters with EU-wide replication potentials.
Within this framework, the importance of Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) is relevant since the first
function of a building is to provide a comfortable and healthy living environment. For this reason, an
innovative solution, the Comfort Eye, has been adopted by P2Endure to provide a non-intrusive and smart
sensing system for the monitoring of the IEQ before and after the renovation. The idea is to feed the
design with important information about the building IEQ issues to be solved by the renovation design.
To this respect, the IEQ P2Endure device, Comfort Eye, is deployed before the intervention to collect data.
Given its low-intrusive installation and operation, the system operates continuously, if possible, also
during the renovation, until the post occupancy evaluation phase.
This report presents the deployment of the Comfort Eye in the selected demonstration cases of the
P2Endure project. In particular, the installation and operationalization of the system in a nursery in
Warsaw (PL) and a nursery in Gdynia (PL) is presented. Initial results from the monitoring are reported, and
to provide a better understanding of those results, the report provides an initial description of the IEQ
monitoring and assessment approach together with a description of the Comfort Eye technology and
