Healthy Indoor Air Quality by Design

This course will 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 design. There will be several case studies of the effects of controlling versus not controlling indoor environmental quality at the design phase of building construction. Emphasis is drawn to the importance of emissions of VOCs over content only requirements. Moreover, the participants will learn the value of specifying certified low emitting products as a proven method for controlling VOC emissions that invade the indoor environment.
