IEQ Assessment for Energy Savings & Increased User Comfort

This course looks at how to assess post-occupancy evaluation of buildings as it affects building performance. How can we verify green building claims? The course discusses the metrics and tools used in post-occupancy evaluations of thermal comfort, and air, acoustic, and visual quality. Use of the National Environmental Assessment Toolkit is proposed as an aid in helping to link building systems to environmental quality and in understanding what should be measured, how it should be measured, and how often it should be measured.
