Design for Well-Being
Considerable progress has been made over the past thirty years toward a more complete understanding of design and construction requirements for "healthy" buildings. It is widely accepted today that the indoor environment is central to our health and well being simply because we spend so much time there. Scientific reports have been widely published by USEPA and other groups showing concentrations of most pollutants are higher indoors, often as much as ten or more times higher than in outdoor air. It may be surprising to many that this data also shows that we are 1000 times more likely to inhale a chemical molecule if it is emitted indoors rather than outdoors.
Healthy buildings by definition provide healthy indoor environments for their human occupants. But how do we define what a healthy indoor environment is, and how it is measured? Join is for this interesting and informative presentation to learn the answer.
Light refreshments will be provided.
