Clean air is vital for human health. Did you know that most people in Ireland spend more than 90% of their time indoors, meaning that the vast majority of the air we breathe every day is indoor air? How can we improve our Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), reduce pollutant levels, and improve the condition of the air we breathe?
Join IGBC’s Patrick O’Reilly for a two-part training course on Indoor Air Quality and Level(s) Indicator 4.1.
- Session 1 – Introduction to Indoor Air Quality, pollutants, and the EU Level(s) framework.
- Part one of this training will take you through the primary factors affecting indoor air quality, the main pollutants of concern and their sources. It will also introduce the EU Level(s) framework, a set of six common indicators to address the environmental performance of buildings.
- Session 2 – The application of Level(s) Indication 4.1 to design, assess, and verify IAQ.
- Part two of the training will focus on the application of Level(s) indicator 4.1 for Indoor Air Quality, demonstrating how it can guide a project from concept design through detailed design and post-occupancy evaluation to achieve best practice indoor air quality performance.
The EU Level(s) framework was developed to be applied to residential buildings or offices; however, its principles are broadly applicable to most building types. The central idea behind the Level(s) framework is for EU member countries to use a common set of indicators and methodologies for measuring environmental performance in buildings, allowing for direct comparison of best practices, sharing of results, and setting evidence-based targets.
The course will be delivered Live online on the following dates:
- Session 1 with Q&A 26th of September 2022, 15:00-17:00.
- Session 2 with Q&A 28th of September 2022, 15:00-17:00.
