How can engineers and architects leverage ASHRAE 62.1’s Indoor Air Quality Procedure (IAQP) during design to improve air quality, save energy and meet carbon targets? Our panel will explore the benefits and risks of the IAQP as one potential method to achieve these goals. The IAQP is a performance-based methodology, guiding designers to calculate ventilation rates based on achieving acceptable levels of contaminants of concern rather than using prescriptive ventilation rates. This strategy potentially provides better indoor air quality with reduced energy costs and a smaller carbon footprint. Though permitted by the NYC Mechanical Code since 2014, and promoted by LEED and WELL, few project teams use this method. The speakers will demystify the IAQP and discuss cases where it is best suited, including a number of successful case studies.
