This paper investigates poor indoor air quality and the resulting negative effects on health, productivity and associated costs, and discusses how to incorporate design techniques and strategies that promote good IAQ. Some of the main practices discussed include preventing pollutants from entering the space, filtering and diluting remaining pollutants, and coordinating with team members through the design and construction process.
