Indoor Air Quality Plan and Testing

BREEAM 2014 Hea 02 Credits – Indoor Air Quality – achieve easy, low cost BREEAM credits

HRS can help you achieve those much needed BREEAM credits by putting together an Indoor Air Quality Plan (IAQP) and carrying out Indoor Air Quality Testing.

The difference between BREEAM 2014 Hea 02 and BREEAM 2011 Hea 02 is that under BREEAM 2014 Hea 02 you can now get two BREEAM credits, one credit for having an IAQP prepared and one credit for carrying out the Indoor Air Quality Testing.

This is a low cost way of achieving two BREEAM credits, something many people are not aware of but it is worth knowing that even if you fail the Indoor Air Quality Test, you can still get the credit for having the plan.

HRS indoor Air Quality Sample AreasWhy were the BREEAM 2014 / 2011 Hea 02 Credits Introduced?

The reason and aim of the BREEAM 2011 Hea 02 Credits (Indoor Air Quality) is to recognise and encourage a healthy internal environment through the specification and installation of appropriate ventilation, equipment and finishes.

The indoor air quality test is carried out post-construction but pre-occupancy and involves looking for the presence of volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, moulds etc.

The percentage credit weighting for Hea 02 is approximately 1% which makes this a simple and attractive BREEAM claim.

Is your building ready for Indoor Air Quality Testing?

Prior to testing, your project will need to be at or near completion with your HVAC system fully operational for a building purge.

Please also note that where levels of detected VOCs/formaldehyde/moulds are found to exceed the prescribed limits, the project team will need to confirm the measures that have or will be undertaken in accordance with the IAQ Plan to reduce the levels so that they fall within the limits.
