Construction Indoor Air Quality Management
The typical American spends 90% of their time indoors, according to US EPA statistics. Air pollutant levels can be 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outdoors—and sometimes up to 100 times higher. Workers and building occupants have been known to suffer from various health problems due to poor indoor air quality.
Airborne contaminants can move through buildings in various ways during the construction process. When poor job site construction practices are followed, moisture and contaminants entering the building may become the cause of long term health and maintenance issues. Through proper planning and preventative construction practices, the potential for long term indoor air quality problems in a completed building can be avoided while also reducing health risks for construction workers.
As a standard operating procedure, we implement a Construction IAQ Management Plan on every W.S. Cumby project. The goal of this effort is to provide a healthy environment for workers during the construction phase and to protect the future occupants of the building.
