The Human-Oriented Built Environment Lab (HOBEL) is the research laboratory of Dr. Dusan Licina within the smart living lab in the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) at EPFL. The focus of HOBEL is centered on advancing the knowledge of the intersections between people and the built environment with an aim to ensure high indoor environmental quality for building BuildingGreen is supported by members, not advertisers. Our work is not supported by advertising, so our sole focus is on our audience. It’s no wonder that Rachel Bannon-Godfrey, Sustainability Discipline Leader at Stantec, says, “BuildingGreen helps me prioritize what information I need to know and where to find reliable ngGreen is not just a reference point, but a community.”   Exposure Factors Handbook Chapter 6—Inhalation Rates height. Also, people living in higher altitudes have larger lung capacity than those living at sea level. Children’s inhalation dosimetry and health effects were topics of discussion at a Environmental. U.S. Protection Agency workshop held in June (Foos and Sonawane, ). The content of CO 2 in the indoor air is only one indicator of the quality of the air, however, it is a very easily identified component and one that is detrimental to the health of ://

Assuming that after 8 hours you are near equilibrium value, then the CO2 level will be about /(*30) = ab ppm, or near-submarine quality. More likely your air exchange rate is which would bring it down to about 4, ppm. Yes. headaches are seen in /claim-co2-makes-you-stupid-as-a-submariner-that-question.

A retrospective cohort study conducted at one junior hlgh school with an attack rate of % did not find age at vaccination or type of vaccine received (sin- gle or combined antigen) to be risk factors for   SUMMARY Damp buildings often have a moldy smell or obvious mold growth; some molds are human pathogens. This has caused concern regarding health effects of moldy indoor environments and has resulted in many studies of moisture- and mold-damaged buildings. Recently, there have been reports of severe illness as a result of indoor mold exposure, particularly due to Stachybotrys :// Stachybotrys has a fondness for cellulose ().While cellulose (especially water damaged) may promote Stachybotrys growth, the same is true for Cladosporium, Penicillium, and Aspergillus species (, , ).The predilection for cellulose, moisture, and nutrient-poor settings explains the appearance of Stachybotrys in affected buildings, where it is a tertiary wall colonizer that comes after

The first underground sewer was installed in This came about after health officials in New York responded to complaints about the smell of open sewers. The first public water main was installed under New York streets in Numerous fires had demonstrated the need for an adequate and available supply of water for fire fighting. Introduction. Since people typically spend over 80% of their time indoors (Klepeis et al., , Adgate et al., ), indoor air quality (IAQ) has a substantial effect on occupants’ comfort, health and all the causes of degradation of indoor air quality, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) have been recognized as one of the most important classes of indoor air Data from the Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) shows that the United States consumes 6, trillion Btu of energy generated for commercial buildings. Figure 1 shows that 44% of commercial building energy use is for HVAC and refrigeration. National survey data shows approximately 50% of the HVAC energy is used for cooling, ventilation, and refrigeration ://   The Bosque Farms Elementary School pictured below is a renovated school within a neighborhood.
