Awareness of indoor environmental conditions and human health has increased in recent years as has the role of government environmental/health agencies. Owners and occupants of public and commercial buildings are affected by requirements of certain public health agencies (TDSHS, EPA, OSHA) as well as the general responsibilities of landlords and tenant agreements.
Indoor spaces represent unique, site-specific environments each with their own individual settings, aesthetics and tenant activities. Understanding the circumstances of each building requires specialized knowledge in the fields of air flow, moisture, temperature, light, interior mechanical and structural systems, and certain external environmental/seasonal factors. Tenant comfort concerns can be addressed without inconvenience or intrusion of normal work activities. These concerns can be solved by knowledge of human health responses to a wide variety of potential irritants, common allergens, and environmental pollutants. Although generally accepted commercial and construction guidelines exist (ASHRAE, NDCA, ASTM), most indoor tenant comfort issues require a combination of different solutions to assure permanent and continuous ideal indoor environmental settings.
