This intermediate level presentation is designed to communicate the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and empower architects, designers and specifiers to employ strategies to improve the IAQ in the spaces they are creating. The presentation will include background on the impact of indoor air pollution on human health and economics. Participants will learn to identify sources of indoor air pollutants, illustrated by several case studies that highlight the effects of controlling, versus not controlling, IAQ at the design phase of building construction. Further, the importance of emissions over content of VOC’s will be highlighted and the impact on high performance building program standards and credits. Emphasis will also be placed on how participants can incorporate good IAQ principles into sustainable building projects.
