Gross floor area of building space:

A brief description of the institution’s indoor air quality program(s) (including information about regular auditing or monitoring, mechanisms for occupants to register complaints, and action plans):

All occupied building space is managed to meet ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007, State of Wisconsin Sustainable Facility Standards, and guidelines for state managed buildings.

The state policy states:
IAQ procedures are essential to a safe and healthy workplace environment.
o Building occupants should report a potential IAQ problem to the building management office and describe the IAQ complaint and its effects on the employee and colleagues.
o Each building occupant IAQ complaint will be recorded on a Building Incident Log Form.
o The Building Manager, or a qualified building management staff member, will go to area of IAQ concern.
o Building occupants in the complaint area will be interviewed and statements recorded on the log form.
o The complaint area will be checked for potential IAQ problems and the results recorded on the log form.
o If Building Management is unable to determine the IAQ problem by observation, mechanical equipment will be checked for proper operation and adjacent areas will be investigated as potential sources of the IAQ problem. Testing for potential contaminants may also be initiated.
o The complaint area will be checked for potential IAQ problems and the results of the investigation will be forwarded to building occupants of the IAQ investigation area until the situation has been resolved.”

Any complaints with IAQ can be submitted to UW - Green Bay Facilities Planning and Management either via e-mail or by phone. Information on campus operations can be found on the Facilities Planning and Management website at http://www.uwgb.edu/facilities/ .
