Workshop on Air Quality in Multi-family Affordable Housing, Tufts University
Event Description

You are invited to a workshop on Air Quality in Multi-family Affordable Housing. The workshop goal is for a study team at Tufts University to get your input on a guidance document they are developing on ways to improve indoor air quality and environmental equity in multi-family affordable housing. The Tufts team will share results from their recent study of air quality in affordable residential buildings in Somerville and Cambridge, MA. Both in-home air quality measurements and resident survey responses will be described. In addition, we will facilitate breakout discussions on a range of topics (see below) designed to engage the anticipated diversity of workshop attendees.

Breakout Discussion Topics (tentative):

  • Codes that improve ventilation practices
  • Occupant education and behavior change
  • Environmental equity in locating and constructing affordable housing
  • From empty lot to occupancy: points of influence for improving indoor air
  • Adaptive reuse and rehabilitation of buildings to meet affordable housing demand

This workshop is intended for a wide audience of experts and generalists who have interest in improving indoor air quality in affordable housing. Consider attending if you work on affordable housing as a developer, architect, HVAC designer, HVAC practitioner, energy rater, energy modeler, or municipal planning and housing official, or as an academic or affordable housing advocate.
