Achieving Adequate Indoor Air Quality in Buildings: What to do During Design, Construction, Commissioning and Operations

Jean Gibbons, PE, LEED AP, QCxP presented Achieving Adequate Indoor Air Quality in Buildings: What to do During Design, Construction, Commissioning and Operations, at the 69th Illinois Chief Engineers & Facility Managers Training Conference in Champaign, Illinois on October 25, 2016.

 

This training conference is designed for both public and private sector chief engineers, facility managers and other key operations/maintenance staff responsible for optimizing the performance of building systems and equipment. The program was developed by a committee of representatives from state agencies, facilities and universities with additional input provided by industry experts and the Illinois Green Economy Network.

 

Jean's presentation was based on Indoor Air Quality Guide: Best Practices for Design, Construction and Commissioning developed by: ASHRAE, AIA, USGBC, BOMA SMACNA, USEPA with particular focus on the Illinois climate, recent developments and new technologies, and areas in which Jean has witnessed frequent IAQ problems. The presentation outline followed the objectives defined in the Indoor Air Quality Guide.
