Building owners and architects have been doing more to obtain LEED credits during design and construction of new buildings in order to make them more energy efficient, and occupant-friendly as it relates to Indoor Air Quality. One of the methods for obtaining LEED credits involves collection of air samples, prior to occupancy with the HVAC system operating as designed and includes the following:
- IAQ-related volatile organic compounds (TVOCs)
- Carbon monoxide
- Particulate Matter that is 10 microns or less (PM-10)
EE&G’s Industyrial Hygiene group can the necessary sampling to comply with testing requirements and produce the necessary documentation to air the architect or building owner obtaining LEED credits.
