Integrating Indoor Air and Design for Sustainability

Integration of IAQ concerns in so-called sustainable designs has suffered from a lack of a comprehensive, science-based assessment methodology for building environmental performance. Guidance and rating systems for “green” buildings fail to address systematically the trade-offs necessary for assessment of the overall performance of a building or its design.

This paper presents a framework constructed on the basis of Building Ecology for such an assessment.
