Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 01, 2011
Later this month, WPL Publishing will sponsor a webinar to help various professionals in the construction community identify specific Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits relating to indoor air quality (IAQ) and reach other IAQ goals.
LEED green building rating systems include credits for measuring and verifying IAQ. The credits include specific requirements for how to measure and test for IAQ. To meet these requirements, it is imperative to understand the importance of IAQ, know how to test for it, and know how to best manage a project’s time and money when testing. The 90-minute webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, July 13, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), is designed to help attendees accomplish these objectives.

The webinar will help attendees do the following:
- Understand the importance of IAQ and how it relates to LEED rating systems.
- Identify specific LEED credits related to IAQ.
- Develop a plan to satisfy IAQ testing requirements.
- Prepare for and know how to test for IAQ for LEED projects.
This webinar focuses on one method of testing indoor air quality by using two media -- the 1L minican with a four-hour pre-set regulator and a PM10 (particulate matter up to 10 micrometers in size) pump and cartridge.
Addressing attendees will be David Linda of Centek Laboratories LLC. Early in 2009, Linda and Centek’s team of analysts and environmental professionals began researching and developing an indoor-air-sampling program specifically to satisfy requirements of LEED Indoor Environmental Quality Credit 3.2 Air Testing. Linda played a key role both in surveying the growing international green building community to determine why so few professionals were pursuing the credit (substantially) and making the program consistent with protocol defined by the LEED rating system. The effort has been dedicated to make the credit more attainable without sacrificing the integrity of its data quality.
Following Mr. Linda’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/6fcenl6.
