(NYSE: BXP), the largest publicly traded developer, owner, and manager of Class A office properties in the United States, has selected Senseware’s technology solution to implement real-time indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring across BXP’s portfolio as part of its healthy building strategy.
“As a leader in sustainable and healthy property development and operations, we are pleased to be adding real-time indoor air monitoring to our portfolio,” said Doug Linde, President, BXP. “Our data-driven approach to operations, including IAQ management, will be informed by real-time, objective measurement to assure that our buildings are providing optimal conditions for our clients and employees.”
Air quality monitoring technology is the latest addition to BXP’s healthy building initiatives, which have been focused on IAQ management, increased ventilation, filtration, testing, and monitoring.

Real-time air quality measurements from duct-mounted sensors, including carbon dioxide and fine particulate matter, will enable BXP to monitor the effectiveness of ventilation and filtration systems.
