The ‘Quality of Indoor Air’ credit assesses the systems that provide air, and the quality of the air supplied to a building’s occupied spaces. The credit evaluates and awards points where there is a process in place for the monitoring and management of pollutants entering the building throughout the performance period, and capacity for the levels of outdoor pollutants to be maintained at acceptable levels.
Points are also awarded where there are processes in place to monitor outside air intake and manage levels of carbon monoxide. Processes must also be in place to monitor and measure the levels of fresh air in regularly occupied spaces during the performance period, and to maintain carbon dioxide concentrations at best practice levels.
