INDOOR AIR QUALITY SAMPLING AND ASSESSMENT
Client: Corporate Law Firm
Project: Air Quality Assessment for Various Parameters
Scope: A multi-floor commercial office space renovation was performed leading to indoor air quality concerns and general discomfort by occupants approximately 4-6 weeks after move-in to the newly constructed floors.
Challenge: The hypothesis that low level off gassing of various organic compounds associated with new building materials, adhesives and mastics in conjunction with inadequate ventilation based on occupant density would be difficult to evaluate and confirm.
Results: Analytical results and the sampling strategy applied revealed low level off gassing in the specific location in which concerns were raised allowing the client to modify occupancy load, evaluate ventilation capacity and minimize exposure to workers.
