LEED Green Building – IAQ

LEED Green Building Indoor Air Quality

Industrial Hygiene Resources conducts indoor air quality (IAQ) testing in support of the construction of Green Buildings. This testing and demonstration of compliance with the established criteria would allow you to claim the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), v4 Interior Design and Construction credit.

The LEED program considers indoor air quality, and allows two options to claim credit in this area. Option 2, the indoor air quality assessment, is our specialty and could help you achieve credit in this area.

All testing protocols are formulated in compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency “Compendium of Methods for the Determination of Air Pollutants in Indoor Air”. Per this requirement, we will perform air sampling for formaldehyde, total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs), carbon monoxide (CO), particulates (PM10), and an expanded list of contaminants.

This same service can also be applied to the evaluation of buildings where occupants have expressed concerns about indoor air quality. Testing of the air can confirm that the air quality is indeed acceptable for occupants. Our testing service uses standardized and nationally accepted criteria for indoor air quality parameters, is efficient, will only require about one day of time on site and will have minimal impact on the operations in your building.
