Recommended Posts

Atlanta/May 30, 2007 - Six organizations related to the built environment are collaborating to provide advanced indoor air quality (IAQ) design guidance for the industry.

The collaboration will develop a book and professional development course that will describe an integrated process for achieving improved IAQ in all elements of a building.

Participating organizations are the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE, www.ashrae.org), the American Institute of Architects (AIA, www.aia.org), the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA, www.boma.org), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA, www.epa.gov), the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA, www.smacna.org), and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC, www.usgbc.org).

The groups recently formalized the collaboration through a memorandum of understanding.
