Event Description:

Building Smart by Designing for People Events
Tuesday, June 4

The “Building Smart by Designing for People” series focuses on creating healthy, safe, adaptive and enriching living environment for building occupants.

Building Smart: Introduction to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)

How do People Respond to Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)?

IEQ is an integrated study of an occupant’s response to the built environment. That being one’s ability to sense and perceive the quality of air, thermal, sound, light, odors and vibrations. It also includes a study of imperceptible elements such as asbestos, radon or CO. Through the efforts of academia and governments, and programs such as the Well Building Standard, Living Building Challenge, Active House and Passive House, IEQ is being positioned as a leading subject matter due to associated impacts on the health and wellness of people.

This Building Smart seminar will provide participants with a basic understanding of how people sense, perceive and respond to indoor spaces and why this influences such things as learning, productivity and health.
