The development of a methodology for a tool for rapid assessment of indoor environment quality in office buildings in the UK
Ncube, Matiwaza (2012) The development of a methodology for a tool for rapid assessment of indoor environment quality in office buildings in the UK. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis describes a methodology for the development of a novel tool for rapid assessment of Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ) in office buildings in the UK. The tool uses design, measured, calculated and surveyed data as input for IEQ calculations. The development of such a tool has become a necessity especially in the developed world where legally binding targets for Green House Gas (GHG) emissions have been agreed and where buildings are required by law to display energy performance certification. The novelty of this tool is that it addresses the need to present an indoor environment performance rating that can be presented alongside energy performance certification since the energy performance of office buildings depends significantly on the criteria used for the indoor environment.
