  • Thermal comfort, indoor air quality and acoustics: a conceptual framework for predicting occupant satisfaction in sustainable office buildings

    The authors propose and test a conceptual framework that delineates occupants' satisfaction with thermal comfort, indoor air quality, and acoustics conditions via post-occupancy evaluation (POE). A self-administered, internet-based, POE questionnaire was administered in two office buildings that were designed and operated as county service centres in a Midwestern state. A series of multiple ...

  • `Green Buildings` can create problems with IAQ

    The recent trend towards energy conservation measures have in some cases led to airtight building construction that can often create problems with Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Some 'green buildings' (also known as ‘green construction’ and ‘sustainable buildings’) have ignored the issue of IAQ in pursuit of energy saving measures. Ventilation systems are set to minimize the ...
