LEED IAQ Air Sampling: A Simple, Cost-Effective Approach
LEED IAQ testing tends to be a highly debated area of LEED accreditation. Is the credit attainable? Is there an easy sampling and analytical procedure? What option? In which buildings is credit applicable?
Centek Laboratories, LLC was asking the same questions when researching the market for LEED IAQ testing. Centek, a distinguished, accredited air specific laboratory has been analyzing for air contaminants since the doors opened at Centek in 2002.
“What we saw (when looking into providing analysis for LEED accreditation) is laboratories were offering a wide variety of sampling media and high analytical pricing,” said David Linda, Centek’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “What we needed to do is add value to the credit by simplification and cost reduction”.
And that’s what Centek’s team of analysts has done. Sampling with their user-friendly equipment and use of US EPA methods, Centek is able to analyze for TVOC, Formaldehyde, 4-PCH, and Carbon Monoxide through one 1L summa canister and preset regulator. No longer will LEED clients have to fuss with badges, pumps, tubes, and extreme temperature controlled shipping procedures. Centek’s process is simply better and cheaper than the competition.
Russ Pellegrino, Laboratory Director, states “The market response has been incredible. Using our unique attributes, we were able to simplify and make the IAQ testing method cost effective, without sacrificing the integrity of the data”.
Judging by the response of work orders at the Laboratory, consultants, builders, architects, and commissioning firms have embraced the concept.
