Frequent Questions

What is the Integrated Building Evaluation and Assessment Model (I-BEAM)?

I-BEAM is computer software for use by building professionals and others interested in indoor air quality in commercial buildings. However, much of the information will also be useful to those interested in indoor air quality in schools. I-BEAM contains text, animation/visual, and interactive/calculation components that can be used to perform several tasks including:  conducting an indoor air quality (IAQ) building audit; diagnosing and resolving IAQ related health problems; establishing an IAQ management and maintenance program to reduce IAQ risks; planning IAQ compatible energy projects; protecting occupants from exposures to construction/renovation contaminants; and calculating the cost, revenue, and productivity impacts of planned IAQ activities.
