ASHRAE Gets EPA Grant to Develop Indoor Air Quality Design Guide


Latest News > Industry News

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded ASHRAE a $510,000 grant to provide guidance for designing and building healthier buildings.

The grant finances development of the "Advanced Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Design Guide for Non-Residential Buildings," which will help professionals implement designs, improve indoor air quality performance, increase energy efficiency and cut the environmental impact of exposure to air toxics in a broad range of non-residential buildings, according to ASHRAE.

The three-year grant is part of some $4 million awarded by the EPA to improve indoor air quality. When completed, the guide will facilitate the design process so that advanced practice can be accomplished with the constraints of typical construction and design fees, says ASHRAE.

ASHRAE will work with the U.S. Green Building Council, the American Institute of Architects and other organizations on the document. The guide is expected to be published in late 2008.
