|Title:||Indoor Air Quality: The Forgotten, Yet Critical, Element in Sustainable Buildings|
|Published:||August 06, 2014|
|Abstract:||In this paper, we consider how high performing, sustainable building programs and designs are currently addressing indoor air quality (IAQ) and how they might improve their treatment of IAQ. As part of this effort, we reviewed 100 case studies of high performing buildings to determine what aspects of IAQ they report on and how often actual IAQ performance data are presented. Based upon this analysis as well as existing standards and guidelines, we discuss what IAQ performance data should be collected during the early stages of a building‰s operation to demonstrate its IAQ performance. We also present an approach to graphically represent such data that allows one to more easily view the multi-faceted nature of IAQ performance.|
