LEED IAQ Testing (EQc3.2)

Chapel Renovation


L&A was contracted to perform indoor air quality testing to meet LEED EQ Credit 3.2 requirements at the completion of the renovation of the University of Dayton Chapel. Based on the configuration of the space and systems, L&A determined that one sample location was necessary. Sampling was performed for carbon monoxide, inhalable particulate (PM10), formaldehyde and total volatile organic compounds; testing for 4-phenylcyclohexane was not required after a review of the carpet flooring submittals. Monitoring and analytical results indicated all parameters were below the maximum concentration limit specified by USGBC, confirming low emitting materials were specified and installed and the construction team employed a successful construction IAQ management plan.
