Indoor Environmental Quality in Green Buildings

This paper summarizes the results of a large indoor environmental quality survey in buildings, comparing green and non-green buildings. On an average, occupants in green buildings were more satisfied with thermal comfort and air quality in their workspace than occupants in non-green buildings. However, the average satisfaction scores in green buildings for lighting and acoustic quality were comparable to the non-green average. Comparing complaint profiles of those dissatisfied with lighting and acoustic quality, a higher percentage of occupants were dissatisfied with light levels and sound privacy in green buildings. My results suggest a need for improvements in controllability of lighting, and innovative strategies to accommodate sound privacy needs Keywords - Green Buildings, Indoor Environmental Quality, Post Occupancy Evaluation Category - Design and Operation of Green Buildings
