IAQ Assessments in High Performing Building

Abstract

Despite numerous efforts to encourage good indoor air quality (IAQ) in high-performing buildings, including several building rating programs, measured IAQ performance data in high- performing buildings are limited. This presentation summarizes data that have been collected in high-performing commercial buildings in North America. In addition, given the absence of consistency in measured parameters and of widely accepted IAQ metrics, suggestions are provided for data that could be collected to demonstrate IAQ performance. The presentation extends these suggestions to other measurable building performance parameters including energy use, water consumption, and waste reduction; and provides an approach to displaying these data in a way that enables comparisons of overall building performance.
