The HPSB Guiding Principles for New Construction and Major Renovations

The Guiding Principles for New Construction addresses indoor environmental quality through ventilation and thermal comfort, specifically adherence with ASHRAE Standards 55-2004 Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy and 62.1-2010 Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality, as well as moisture control to minimize mold contamination and building damage. Optimizing daylighting, specifying low-emitting materials, and protecting indoor air quality during construction is made explicit. Prohibiting, through policy and signage, the ability to smoke within 25 feet of building entrances, windows and ventilation intakes is similarly advised.

The HPSB Guiding Principles for Existing Buildings

The Guiding Principles for Existing Buildings advises buildings be upgraded to meet ASHRAE Standard 55-2004: Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy and ASHRAE 62.1-2010: Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality among other IEQ best practices including moisture control policies, occupant controlled lighting, low-emitting material specifications, pesticide management, and environmental tobacco smoke control.
