ARCH 692B: Building Science Thesis

Instructor: Karen Kensek

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is one of the components of indoor environmental quality that needs considerable attention from building designers. Currently, people spend 90% of their daily routine in indoor spaces. It is not only necessary to be aware of the role of indoor environmental quality on wellbeing, but also the impacts from buildings components.The presented research explores the influence of building materials on VOC emissions. A two story residential house is used as the case study to assess the impact from materials in the building envelope on IAQ by using the CONTAM indoor air quality simulation tool.
