Indoor Air Quality Postoccupancy
|Offered by||Green Building Research Institute (GBRI)|
|Category||Indoor environmental quality|
This article provides an in-depth look at the issues and strategies associated with preserving and maintaining indoor air quality after building occupancy. Included are discussions of how design decisions made prior to occupancy, as well as practices instituted once a building is operational, can affect occupant health, productivity and attitudes. Strategies to prevent contamination will be discussed, and the article will focus on LEED credits from the BD+C, ID+C, and O+M rating system that relate to post-occupancy IAQ.
1. Describe the effects of good and bad IAQ on occupant health and productivity
2. Assess post-occupancy IAQ practices for effectiveness and compliance
3. Discuss the LEED requirements for post-occupancy IAQ
4. Analyze case studies that demonstrate good IAQ procedures, and evaluate how these practices could be applied to other projects
