Indoor Air Quality Testing

Encon Associates carry out several Indoor Air Quality Tests to establish level of air pollutants including VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) and Formaldehyde Emissions post construction. These tests can be undertaken to satisfy BREEAM Hea 02 credits.

VOCs are organic chemicals that easily vapourise at room temperature and are found in building materials such as carpets, paints, wall panels and adhesives. Exposure to high levels of VOCs can have an adverse effect on human health and comfort, such as eye and airway irritation, headaches and tiredness. Subsequently, there is increasing demand to reduce VOC emissions from indoor sources.

VOC Testing

Our testing is conducted with a site visit and requires the measurement of TVOC levels over a representative time period in determined rooms to establish the VOC levels. The samples are then sent to a laboratory, which complies with BREEAM 2018 requirements for analysis.

The results are then reported on in a BREEAM compliant document suitable for compliance with Hea 02 criteria.
