This interactive training module will educate users about elements and properties of healthy office buildings through the selection of potential improvement measures for three hypothetical office building scenarios. By evaluating the provided indoor environmental quality (IEQ) performance assessment, the user will learn to identify strategies and key observations to improve IEQ conditions. The goal is to select the most applicable improvement measures for the respective building scenario and achieve the highest rating result. The content of this training is based on the Healthy Buildings and Energy Support Tool (H-BEST) and the module will aid in understanding the use of H-BEST for office buildings.
Upon completion of this training, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the main components and concepts of a "healthy building";
- Recognize how office buildings promote occupant health and well-being;
- Demonstrate the ability to use H-BEST to evaluate areas of potential improvement for IEQ; and
- Identify which IEQ strategies are applicable in which conditions.
