Wood Innovators Conference

Big changes are sweeping Maine’s woods economy and there’s a lot of good news. New products are in production that you would never guess are made of wood. Engineered lumber is being manufactured in wall-size panels that can replace concrete and steel. And forestry is being retooled as a climate change mitigation tool. 

Join us for a day of discussion, demonstrations, and socializing at the Wood Innovators Conference.

Maine Indoor Air Quality Council - How to Do IAQ: The Diagnostic Building Inspection

4 HSW

A thorough, diagnostic building investigation can often identify and solve an indoor air quality problem or complaint.  This program will focus on the methods and tools available to employers, building owners, and facility managers to uncover the root cause of an IAQ complaint in a larger building, and provide an overview of the available visual inspection and measurement techniques. This is a "hands-on" training:  participants will be introduced to concepts and techniques in a classroom setting, and then spend the rest of the day practicing these investigative strategies in actual facilities.

Participants will learn:

  • Basic building diagnostic skills
  • What to look for in a building investigation and how to look for it
  • What you can see in a visual inspection
  • What you can measure:  measurement tools and what they tell you
  • Overview of the U.S. EPA Building Air Quality Guide: still the definitive guide for building owners and managers to diagnose and resolve IAQ problems in larger buildings.
