WC2 Air quality: what can building services engineers do to improve air quality?

10:45 - 11:30

There is a balancing act to achieve good low carbon, energy efficient, air tight buildings without reducing indoor air quality. This session provides building services engineers with some insight into proven strategies for maintaining air quality in buildings.

  • The roles engineers play in the air pollution crisis: designing pathways, accumulation and sources of air pollution
  • Pathways: the way a building is ventilated, designs a pathway for air pollution to enter the building
  • Accumulation: the air tightness of the building and the ventilation rates allow air pollutants to accumulate
  • Sources: the inclusion of CHP, boilers and any other combustion plant designs a source of air pollution
