| v2 - LEED 2.0

Indoor chemical and pollutant source control - non-cleaning - isolation of high-volume copying/print rooms/fax stations

EQc5.2 | Possible 1 point


Reduce exposure of building occupants and maintenance personnel to potentially hazardous chemical, biological and particle contaminants, which adversely impact air quality, health, building finishes, building systems and the environment.


Have in place over the performance period structural deck-to-deck partitions with separate outside exhausting, no air re-circulation and negative pressure to contain and isolate high volume copying/print rooms/fax stations. High volume means any copy machine, print or fax station with a monthly copy usage of more than 40,000 pages. This credit can also be earned by putting all copiers, printers, and fax machines exceeding a lower monthly capacity or usage threshold (selected by the building owner) in isolated separately ventilated rooms.
