Infectious disease and the built environment have a long history of impacts. New York State Tenement House Act was established in 1901 was the first law to enact building standards to promote ventilation. The result of laws like this had a drastic impact on the rate of infectious disease.
The current pandemic provides another opportunity for a response to infectious disease that is influenced by the built environment. The following programs demonstrate a visible commitment from a third-party verification to provide occupants security that established programs and protocol are in place to protect their health for this pandemic and future disease mitigation.
Our experience lends to a greater understanding of building systems and impacts on thermal comfort and ventilation. Contact us for additional support that may not be covered in one of these rating systems.
