A. INTRODUCTION

* Green Building
Green buildings are designed and operated to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on its surroundings which means reducing building impact on human health and environment during the building’s lifecycle through saving energy and resources, recycling materials and minimising the emission of toxic substances. International research confirms that green buildings consume less energy, less water and generate less waste and create a healthy and productive environment for employees. (by TONY ARNEL, World Green Building Council) Different countries have their own rating system of green building for example GBI (Green Building Index0) in Malaysia, Green Building Council known as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) in USA; INDOOR ENVIRONMENT QUALITY is one the key criteria. Indoor environment quality basically achieving good performance in indoor air quality, acoustics, visual and thermal comfort, but in this report I will focus on indoor quality which enhances the application of quality air filtration by Air & Odor Management (AOM) The main objective of the company is to reduce sick building syndrome* by improving indoor air quality According to Wikipedia, sick building syndrome is a combination of ailments associated with an individual’s place of work or residence.
