Field-Test of the New ASHRAE/CIBSE/USGBC Performance Measurement Protocols: Intermediate and Advanced Level Indoor Environmental Quality Protocols Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper presents the preliminary results of an effort to develop and apply a field test to evaluate the ASHRAE/CIBSE/USGBC Performance Measurement Protocols (PMP) Intermediate and Advanced Level Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) performance protocols in a case-study building in Central Texas. In accordance with the Intermediate and Advanced Level IEQ protocols, a comprehensive instrumentation cart was developed to collect continuous data from several IEQ-related parameters, including: air and globe temperatures at four levels, humidity, air speed, CO2, VOCs, horizontal and vertical illuminance level, as well as A-weighted and C-weighted sound pressure levels. Using the developed instrumentation cart, continuous IEQ measurements were conducted in several office spaces of a case-study building from July to September 2011. In addition to the instrumented measurements, an occupant 'right-now' survey of thermal sensation and comfort was concurrently conducted. The data collected were then analyzed and compared with the appropriate PMP recommended benchmarks. 2012 ASHRAE.
