The odor from recently installed building materials and finishes such as flooring, paints and finishes, caulks and sealants, cabinets and work surfaces made from composite lumber products can reduce indoor air quality. The most common cause of these odors is the release of gases, such as formaldehyde and a wide range of other volatile organic compounds (VOC's), from the products into the air. To increase indoor air quality, large amounts of outdoor air can be forced through a recently completed building for a period of 3 to 90 days so that the majority of pollutant emissions from building materials, finishes, and furnishings can be removed from the building before occupancy.

Buildings are significant users of the Earth’s potable water supply. The goal of a responsible building operator should be to encourage a smarter use of water, both inside and outside the facility. Indoor water use reduction is typically achieved through efficient plumbing fixtures, fittings, appliances and process equipment used to heat and cool the building; outdoor water use reduction efforts should focus on water-wise landscaping.
As needs change over time, tenants often need to convert space or phase the conversion of individual space or rooms to meet these changing needs.
