Dublin (PRWEB UK) 15 June 2011
airmid healthgroup ltd have another exciting announcement regarding the newly developed Sustainable Buildings and Indoor Air Quality abstract. The abstract has been accepted by the US Association of Asthma Educators and focuses on the fact that good Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) is a fundamental principle of sustainable “green” buildings and the creation of healthy indoor homes and offices requires that at design, construction, furnishing and maintenance stages, that there must be a balance between maximising energy conservation and protecting health in buildings.
The abstract reports on those respiratory illnesses that are either caused or aggravated by poor indoor air quality and recognises the need for environmental control measures as part of an overall management plan for those with allergies and asthma.
Caitriona O’Donovan, General Manager of the health friendly air programme said this of the abstract, “Given that those with allergies and asthma are particularly susceptible to indoor air pollution we are delighted that our airmid healthgroup ltd abstract on Sustainable Buildings and Indoor Air Quality has been accepted by the US Association of Asthma Educators”.
