Product Information
The impact of building materials and construction methods on the health and wellbeing of occupants is often underestimated. This book is an essential guide to understanding and avoiding hazardous materials and poor air quality in buildings. The author covers a range of issues beginning with an explanation of how buildings work and how this influences the health of occupants and users. The text covers: Ventilation, air conditioning and indoor air quality Damp and mould Asthma and respiratory problems Cancer and endocrine disorders Radiation and radon Hazardous building materials used in construction Indoor air quality and emissions Ecological alternatives and approaches and remedies for 'sick' buildings The book also guides the reader through the confusing world of regulations, EU and international guidelines and certifications, and provides a critical analysis of different theories of healthy buildings and philosophies. Written in a clear and accessible style, this book provides indispensable advice and information to anyone wishing to better understand healthy buildings and materials. It is essential reading for architects, surveyors, public health professionals, facilities managers and environmentalists.

ReviewsAs industry and regulation increasingly focus on energy and carbon saving to fulfil our environmental responsibility, this book is a timely reminder that the quality of the buildings we occupy has to be given the same importance as energy performance. In this book Professor Woolley revisits his previous excellent research in toxicity and materials by delivering a book that will be vital in addressing the issues of health and our built environment for practitioners and students alike. Alison Pooley   For quite some time issues of the outdoor environment and climate change have overshadowed the issue of indoor air quality. Woolley presents a range of evidence showing that the indoor air quality problem remains highly pertinent, and largely ignored not only by public authorities and the construction industry, but also unfortunately by several health - and environmental organizations. Modern solutions for energy efficient buildings, such as the passive house, potentially amplify this problem through increased focus on impermeability, new insulation materials and balanced ventilation system with heat recovery. But Woolley shows us the way forward. He documents with great experience and thoroughness that there is no contradiction between high energy efficiency and good indoor air quality. Proposed solutions include the use of low-emitting materials, hygroscopic surfaces and natural ventilation. This knowledge is deeply valuable to anyone interested in indoor air quality.

Bjørn Berge, Gaia Architects ãee A powerful plea to to make better choices about the products we use and the way we build. This book is a wake-up call for anyone who believes it possible to deliver healthy buildings without challenging the dependence on complex industrial chemicals.
