Why Should a Project Seek Credits Associated with Hea 02 ‘Indoor Air Quality’?
The internal environment of new structures, or refurbished buildings, although newly developed can pose a health risk to occupants. This can occur as a result of the emission of harmful pollutants from materials utilised as part of the construction, fit out and finishing works, such as paints and furnishings. In addition, improperly designed ventilation strategies can lead to a build-up of airborne compounds. Collectively these issues can cause a deterioration in the quality of internal air and lead to adverse health effects for those exposed. Achieving the criteria set out in Hea 02 ‘Indoor Air Quality’ facilitates an active approach to reducing internal pollutant concentrations during design, construction and completion of a scheme. This minimises emissions and potential exposure to harmful indoor pollutants and improves the internal environment of a development and most importantly, the health and well being of its occupants.
