LEED NC IEQp2 – Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) Control
Multifamily residences and hotels may feel compelled to allow smoking in some or all units, and some projects, like airports, have designated smoking rooms. In these cases, stringent measures will be needed to stop movement of smoke from smoking to nonsmoking areas. These measures include air barriers between units, negative air pressure in smoking areas, and separate exhaust systems. Blower door testing is required within residential units or hotel rooms. Healthy Buildings has become the leader in the testing and documentation for this LEED requirement. Our experience in identifying problematic areas for air leakage and providing pre-testing discovery inspections for each project have been the key to our clients’ success.
