LEED NC/CI IEQc3.2 – Construction IAQ Management Plan, Before Occupancy (IAQ Testing)
Healthy Buildings originally co-wrote the indoor air quality testing method published by the USGBC for IEQc3.2. The advantages of using the IAQ test method to earn this credit over the flush-out procedure include minimal impact to the construction schedule, lower cost, and enhanced liability protection. Through coordination and using instantaneous sampling equipment, we ensure favorable conditions exist before IAQ sampling. Depending on the number of required sampling locations, the testing methodology can often be completed in a day or two, as opposed to the flush-out method which can take weeks and delay occupancy.
Healthy Buildings has successfully earned this credit in over 500 LEED projects.
