||Indoor air quality evaluation of a new office building

||An evaluation of the thermal and environmental performance of a new U.S. government office building was performed as part of a research effort to develop methods for evaluating buildings using advanced technology during the pre-occupancy and early occupancy stages. A diagnostic centre was installed capable of monitoring several parameters, including air filtration and ventilation rates and the levels of indoor contaminants. The contaminants were measured as frequently as every 10 minutes at several locations; they include: carbon dioxide; carbon monoxide; respirable particulates; formaldehyde; radon; and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). There are at least 37 VOCs in the interior air. Although the levels of these compounds are below established limits, they are also compounds for which no extensive research has been done to establish irritant levels.
