The issue of Indoor Air Quality has been gradually rising in the public consciousness alongside that of city outside air pollution over the last few years. BSRIA should be praised for their presence of mind in holding this timely IAQ themed event last week in London.
Article by Peter Dyment, Buildings IAQ and Energy Consultant – Camfil Ltd
The event called ‘Indoor Air Quality – must we live with problems?’ was aimed at anyone involved in the air quality arena including all designers, as well as controls companies, contractors, ventilation suppliers and those involved in regulation in the industry.
