Indoor air quality plan – scope

Where possible, the indoor air quality plan must cover all items in the criteria. This means the plan must be completed for:

  • Situations where BREEAM has been engaged later in the project (see KBCN1544).
  • Shell only / shell and core projects – the plan must be completed for the scope of works being assessed.
  • Refurbishment projects with a limited scope of works.

Within these requirements, there is flexibility for the design team to use their professional judgement to determine what is appropriate to meet the criteria.

Any exclusions must be clearly evidenced and justified.

As the basis for effective asset management, the indoor air quality plan must be written in a consistent and comprehensive manner. The report must address relevant aspects as fully as possible within the scope of the development.
