Unlike in other disciplines, no agreed rating scheme exists and is used systematically to rate indoor environmental quality.
This webinar will present 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.
This free online event is open to everyone.
Pawel Wargocki is professor at the Technical University of Denmark. He graduated from the Warsaw University of Technology in Poland. He received his Ph.D. from the Technical University of Denmark in 1998, where he has been teaching and performing research ever since. He has more than 25 years of experience in research on human requirements in indoor environments. He is best known for his seminal work demonstrating that poor indoor environmental quality affects the performance of office work and learning.
Other work influenced requirements for ventilation and air cleaning. Recent research includes studies on human emissions, sleep quality, the development of IEQ rating schemes, and the performance of green buildings. He has collaborated with leading research institutions, universities, and industrial partners worldwide, such as the National University of Singapore, Jiaotong University in Shanghai, Syracuse Center of Excellence, United Technologies, and Google.
He was President and long-standing board member of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), President of the ISIAQ Academy of Fellows (previously Academy of Indoor Air Sciences), Vice President of the Indoor Air 2008 conference, and Chair of ASHRAE committees. He has received several awards for his work, including the Rockwool Award for Young Researchers, ASHRAE Ralph Nevins Award, ISIAQ’s Yaglou Award, and the Indoor Air Journal Best Paper Awards. He has been published extensively.
