Our qualified technicians can assist you in obtaining credits for undertaking measurements of total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) and formaldehyde as required by BREEAM Health & Wellbeing Hea 02 – Indoor Air Quality. Out test are carried out by fully qualified and experienced technicians in strict accordance with the following standards:
EN ISO 16000-6:2011 Indoor air. Determination of volatile organic compounds in indoor and test chamber air by active sampling on Tenax TA sorbent, thermal desorption and gas chromatography using MS ;
BS EN ISO 16000-3: 2011 Indoor air. Determination of formaldehyde and other carbonyl compounds in indoor air and test chamber air. Active sampling method;
BS EN 16017-2: 2003 Indoor, ambient and workplace air. Sampling and analysis of volatile organic compounds by sorbent tube/thermal desorption/capillary gas chromatography;
BS EN ISO 16000-4: 2011 Indoor air. Determination of formaldehyde. Diffusive sampling method.
Prior to the assessment out technicians will thoroughly review the existing building plans and air management plans with the purpose of designing the most suitable and representative sampling strategy. Consideration is taken of the proposed and likely use of the space, presence of specific construction materials, ventilation rates and size and geometric complexity of the area under consideration.
