Understanding Building Materials’ Contribution to Indoor Air Quality

Differentiating between vapor intrusion and background indoor air sources can be challenging. Background indoor air sources can be from chemicals or products used or stored in a building but they can also be from the building materials themselves. This presentation provides a case study in evaluating the presence of VOCs in building materials and the affect these impacts had on the vapor intrusion evaluation and mitigation of a large former manufacturing facility.
