A series of parameters have been developed to describe building and HVAC characteristics of commercial buildings in conjunction with indoor air quality investigations lasting one week or less. The building characterization includes both general information on the building as well as more specific information on the space being investigated. The space will in general be only a portion of the building, but it could be the entire building. The parameters include those features deemed essential to an investigation intended to obtain baseline information on a test space within a building as opposed to a detailed research study or an effort to diagnose a specific problem. The report consists of checklists or forms for recording information on the building and HVAC parameters, along with instructions for completing the checklists. The checklists are divided in four areas: (A) Whole Building Description, (B) Test Space Description, (C) HVAC System Description, and (D) HVAC System Performance.
