A propos d'Octopus Lab
Created in 2017 by Maxence Mendez, Octopus Lab is a start up resulting from a national research project funded by ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) carried out within the Universities of Strasbourg and La Rochelle.
Octopus Lab specializes in forecasting indoor air quality. Our goal is to guide building designers in their construction choices to provide future occupants with good indoor air quality and preserve it once occupied.
The INDALO® software suite allows you to predict the indoor air quality (IAQ) in your buildings and protect everyone’s health. Our expertise in modelling of indoor air chemistry allows you to anticipate the concentrations of many pollutants in indoor air and to provide you with solutions during the design, renovation or operation of your buildings. Octopus Lab also helps you as consulting engineers to ensure better air quality for your operations.
Make the right choices when designing or renovating your buildings with our innovative INDALO® software.
With our smartbuiding offer INDALO® Supervision, maintain healthy air for the occupants of your buildings all day long.

They trust us
During the MERMAID research project on indoor air in low consumption buildings, during which INDALO was designed, we observed that the software’s forecasts were comparable to the actual measurements. So this is a serious solution that has a bright future. Buildings are more and more airtight, so owners must understand that the additional cost generated by the attention paid to air quality will quickly be absorbed by savings on future repairs, especially in terms of ventilation.
