IAQM Webinar - On the quest for the rating of indoor environmental quality, the TAIL rating scheme

Unlike in other disciplines, no agreed rating scheme exists and is used systematically to rate indoor environmental quality.

This webinar presented the basis for development of such a scheme and introduce the new rating scheme called TAIL. The TAIL scheme combines the quality of Thermal, Acoustic and Luminous environment and Indoor air quality to determine the overall quality of the indoor environment. The rating is based on the levels of twelve parameters characterizing IEQ, which are measured, modelled, or inspected in actual buildings. The scheme creates a complete method for evaluating IEQ and its components during the design and operation of a building. No such method has been available previously.
