iii. Roles and Responsibilities

Integrated Pest Management Team

Name/Title

Responsibilities

Overall responsible party:

Nia Steadley/Property Manager

  1. Ensuring that this plan is executed
  2. Ensuring that the contracted IPM vendor is fully trained on this plan and adheres to the plan procedures
  3. Coordinating site visits by the vendor for regular inspections and as needed for implementation of pest controls
  4. Overseeing work performed by the vendor
  5. Approving the use of pesticides when they are necessary
  6. Providing proper notification to occupants when non-least toxic pesticides are applied
  7. Ensuring tenant contracts are aware of the procedures in this plan
  8. Evaluating performance and making updates to the plan as necessary

Ehrlich Pest Control (or current Pest Control vendor)

  1. Adhering to the procedures outlined in this plan
  2. Identifying pests during site visits and inspections
  3. Reporting the results of site visits and inspections to the overall responsible party
  4. Notifying the overall responsible party when pest action thresholds are reached or exceeded
  5. Obtaining approval to approve from the overall responsible party pesticides when necessary

Tenant contacts

  1. Reporting pest issues in respective tenant spaces to the overall responsible party

 

The pest control vendor is responsible for adhering to the procedures outlined in this plan and reporting the results of site inspections to the Property Manager. If at any time integrated and alternative pest control methods fail and chemical pesticides are necessary, the pest control vendor must notify the Property Manager prior to using the chemical pesticides and wait for approval from the Property Manager prior to applying the pesticides.

Each tenant in the building has a designated contact for communications regarding pest control. The tenant contacts are responsible for reporting pest issues in their space to the Property Manager. When the use of non-least toxic pesticides is necessary, the Property Manager will notify the tenant contacts, and the tenant contacts are then responsible for notifying the occupants in their space.

iv. Standard Operating Procedures and Implementation Strategies

Pest control strategies

The building interior and exterior will be periodically inspected for the presence of pests and preventive measures will be taken to avoid pests. If any pests are detected, integrated (nonchemical) methods will be implemented as the first control step, including sanitation measures, exclusion measures, and the use of traps.

Sanitation: Potential food and water sources available to pests will be evaluated and minimized or eliminated. This can be done by thoroughly cleaning and maintaining food service areas and break rooms, fixing leaking pipes and faucets, and altering landscape features to eliminate standing water.

Exclusion: Cracks, crevices, and holes in the building envelope will be sealed. A plant-free zone will be maintained immediately adjacent to the building.

Traps: For insects and rodents, non-chemical baits (such as peanut butter) will be used to trap pests. No chemical baits for rodents will ever be used indoors. If chemical rodent baits are necessary outdoors, they will only be used as solid blocks places in locked outdoor dispensers. No second-generation (single-feed) rodent baits will be used.

If integrated pest control measures are unable to resolve the problem, least toxic pesticides will be used prior to resorting to the use of non-least toxic pesticides. Least toxic pesticides include any pesticide product for which all active ingredients and known inert ingredients meet the least toxic Tier III hazard criteria under the San Francisco Hazard Review Process (http://sfenvironment.org/article/residents/leasttoxic-pesticides-for-green-buildings).

Products that are not regulated as pesticides by the EPA because they primarily contain low-risk ingredients, such as garlic oil, may also be considered least toxic options, even if they are not listed as Tier 3 by San Francisco. Nonrodent pesticides that exceed the Tier 3 criteria are considered least toxic if they are used in self-contained baits and placed in locations that are inaccessible to occupants. Rodent baits are not considered least toxic under any circumstances.

Non-least toxic pesticides include all chemical rodent baits and any product that meets the Tier 1 or 2 criteria according to the San Francisco Hazard Review Process. Non-least toxic pesticides may only be used under the following circumstances:

  1. Alternative, integrated, and least toxic pest control measures have been exhausted and the pest action threshold is still exceeded
    1. In this situation, notification (according to the procedures below) must be given to building occupants at least 24 hours before the pesticide is applied to the building or grounds
  2. The emergency action threshold has been exceeded
    1. In this situation, notification (according to the procedures below) must be given to building occupants no more than 24 hours after the pesticide is applied to the building or grounds

The use of non-least toxic pesticides or rodenticides as pest control in areas requiring frequent treatment on a permanent basis is not an acceptable strategy for this credit. Non-least toxic pesticides will not be continuously applied in the building and on the site. Integrated and alternative pest control measures will be resumed once the action threshold specified below for the applicable pest is no longer exceeded.

Pesticide application notification

The overall responsible party will notify the tenant contacts via email of the pesticide application, including the pesticide name, the EPA registration number, the treatment location, and the date of the application. The tenant contacts are then responsible for distributing the notification to the occupants in their space. In addition, the overall responsible party will post a sign at the application site, such that an occupant reading the sign can choose to avoid the application area (for example, if the pesticide is applied in a break room, all entrances to the break room shall have a sign posted). The sign will also include the pesticide name, the EPA registration number, the treatment location, and the date of the application.

Tenant Communication plan

If pests are observed in a tenant space, it is the responsibility of the tenant to notify the overall responsible party of the pest via email. Within one business day, the overall responsible party will contact the pest control vendor to inspect the situation and determine whether the regular action threshold or the emergency action threshold has been met. The pest control vendor will then take the appropriate actions.

Action thresholds

Regular treatment includes the use of first non-chemical controls (sanitation, exclusion, traps using non-chemical baits), followed by the use of least-toxic control methods if the situation is not resolved, and then non-least toxic control methods is the situation is still not resolved.

Emergency treatment includes the use of the most effective control method as a first step, which may be non-least toxic.

Pest Type

Action thresholds

Ants

Regular treatment will be performed if any ants are noted in the building and their presence is confirmed through monitoring.

 

Emergency treatment may be used if there are ten or more reported cases or complaints of ants within a two day period.

Other insects

Regular treatment will be performed if nuisance insects are noted in the building and their presence is confirmed through monitoring.

 

Emergency treatment may be used if there are ten or more reported cases or complaints of nuisance insects within a two day period.

Cockroaches

Regular treatment will be performed if any cockroaches are noted in the building and their presence is confirmed through monitoring.

 

Emergency treatment may be used if the presence of cockroaches is confirmed in two different spaces within the building OR if the presence of a large population of cockroaches is confirmed in one space in the building.

Rat, Mouse

Regular treatment will be performed if rats or mice are noted in the building and their presence is confirmed through monitoring.

 

Emergency treatment may be used if the presence of rats or mice is confirmed in two or more different spaces within the building.

Bed bugs

Emergency treatment may be used if the presence of bed bugs is confirmed in the building.

Other occasional invaders

If the pests pose a threat to occupants’ health, emergency treatment may be sought. Otherwise, regular treatment will be performed.

 

 

v. Performance measurement and schedule for reassessment

All pest control activity, including inspections, will be recorded in the IPM tracking tool. The following items will be tracked:

  • Pest type and name
  • Pest population density and monitoring frequency
  • Pest action threshold observed
  • Prevention measures implemented
  • Product applied (name)
  • Toxicity of the product (the tier level as determined by the San Francisco Hazard Review Process)
  • Date and time of product application (if applicable)
  • Date and time of occupant notification (if applicable)
  • Emergency application? (Y/N). If yes, an explanation of the emergency will be included.

The overall responsible party will record each pest that is reported by tenants in the IPM tracking tool. The pest control vendor will record the applicable items from each site visit in the IPM tracking tool.

On an annual basis, performance will be evaluated against the goals specified above. If the goals are not being met adjustments will be made to this plan in order to facilitate goal achievement. If adjustments to the action thresholds are necessary, the overall responsible party will work with tenant contacts and the IPM vendor as necessary in order to appropriately adjust the action thresholds.

vi. Quality Assurance/Quality Control Processes

On an annual basis, the overall responsible party will evaluate performance against the goals specified earlier in this plan. If the goals are not being met, adjustments will be made to this plan in order to facilitate goal achievement, and the pest vendor and tenant contacts will be educated on the adjustments made to the plan.

Green Purchasing Policy

 

I. Purpose

3344 Peachtree Road has developed this environmentally preferable purchasing policy to encourage the purchase and use of materials, products, and services that incorporate environmental, social, community, and performance goals.

II. Scope

3344 Peachtree Road integrates Environmentally Preferable Purchasing within the building’s practices and site management’s control. The following policy is fully implemented where feasible and cost-effective, for Brandywine Realty Trust owned and/or managed properties. The policy meets the requirements of LEED EBOM: Materials and Resources, prerequisite 1 (MRp1): Sustainable Purchasing Policy and follows guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Comprehensive Procurement Guideline Program, with a listing under the CPG Product Supplier Directory (https://www.epa.gov/smm/comprehensive-procurement-guideline-cpg-program). This policy must be implemented both during and following the project’s LEED EBO&M Performance Period.

Green Purchasing is the practice of preventing waste and pollution by considering environmental impacts, along with price, performance, and other traditional selection factors, when making purchasing decisions. This policy encompasses the goals, scope, and performance metric for the following:

Sustainable Purchasing for Ongoing Consumables

Ongoing consumables are low cost products that are replaced frequently. This includes paper, binders, batteries, toner cartridges, desk accessories, etc. Food and beverages are excluded. 3344 Peachtree Road encourages at least 60% of the ongoing consumable purchases to meet the sustainable criteria by cost. If the product meets two criteria, then the cost may count double toward the target percentage of green purchases.

  • Purchases contain at least 10% post-consumer or 20% post-industrial material
  • Purchases contain at least 50% rapidly renewable material
  • Purchases contain at least 50% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood
  • Purchases contain at least 50% material harvested and processed or extracted and processed within 500 miles of the project
  • Batteries are rechargeable

Sustainable Purchasing for Durable Goods

This policy covers items with a higher cost per unit and durable goods that are replaced infrequently and/or may require capital program outlays to purchase. These items include but are not limited to electric-powered equipment like computers, fax machines, refrigerators, external power adapters, televisions, etc. In addition, durable goods include office furniture including chairs, desks, filing cabinets, shelves, and system furniture.

3344 Peachtree Road promotes at least 40% green durable goods that meet one or more of the following specifications:

  • ENERGY STAR labeled
  • The equipment (either battery or corded) replaces conventional gas-powered equipment
  • Purchases contain at least 10% post-consumer or 20% post-industrial material

  • Purchases contain at least 50% rapidly renewable material
  • Purchases contain at least 50% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood
  • Purchases contain at least 50% material harvested and processed or extracted and processed within 500 miles of the project

Sustainable Purchasing for Facility Alterations and Additions

3344 Peachtree Road encourages at least 50% of the total construction materials by cost to be green procurements. Green materials for facility alterations and additions meet one of more of the following requirements:

  • Purchases contain at least 10% post-consumer or 20% post-industrial material
  • Purchases contain at least 70% material salvaged from off-site or outside the organization
  • Purchases contain at least 70% material salvaged from on-site, through an internal materials and equipment reuse program
  • Purchases contain at least 50% rapidly renewable material
  • Purchases contain at least 50% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood
  • Purchases contain at least 50% material harvested and processed or extracted and processed within 500 miles of the project
  • Adhesives and sealants have a VOC content less than the current VOC content limits of South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 1168, or sealants used as fillers meet or exceed the requirements of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District Regulation 8, Rule 51.
  • Paints and coatings have VOC emissions not exceeding the VOC and chemical component limits of Green Seal’s Standard GS-11 requirements.
  • Non-carpet finished flooring is FloorScore certified and constitutes a minimum of 25% of the finished floor area.
  • Carpet meets the requirements of the CRI Green Label Plus Carpet Testing Program.
  • Carpet cushion meets the requirements of the CRI Green Label Testing Program.
  • Composite panels and agrifiber products contain no added urea-formaldehyde resins.

Toxic Material Source Reduction for Reduced Mercury in Lamps

This Policy includes the establishment and maintenance of a toxic material source reduction program to reduce the amount of mercury brought onto the building site through the purchase of lamps. At least 90% of all lamps should contain less than 90 picograms of mercury per lumen-hour or less than 70 picograms of mercury per lumen-hour, if possible.

 

The EPA Guiding Principles for obtaining products and services considered to be environmentally preferable are:

  • Include environmental considerations as part of the normal purchasing process
  • Emphasize pollution prevention as part of the purchasing process
  • Examine multiple environmental attributes throughout the product or service’s life cycle
  • Compare environmental impacts when selecting products and services
  • Collect accurate and meaningful information about the environmental performance of products and services

For more information on the EPA Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Program please visit: http://www.epa.gov/epp/.

Additional Information can be found at the following website locations:

 

II. Performance Metric

Annual evaluations are recommended so 3344 Peachtree Road can assess the program’s progress, complications, and possible areas for improvement. 3344 Peachtree Road personnel will update an inventory review each procedure. Records will be maintained on suggested changes, including procedural changes or tools, and why the changes were or were not included. This will evaluate current procedures, confirm adopted practices, ensure proper application, and validate products.

The percentage of sustainably purchased products will be compared by cost to the total purchases in each category. These metrics will be calculated and reported on an annual basis. Progress towards this goal will be tracked and shared internally.

 

III. Goals

Implementation of the Sustainable Purchasing Policy is meant to prioritize the purchase of products that are environmentally responsible and social advantageous. 3344 Peachtree Road considers life-cycle-costing when procuring products, which assesses the total economic performance of a product combining the initial price, operational expenses, maintenance costs, etc. Additional objectives will include resource use reduction and waste prevention. 3344 Peachtree Road will encourage the purchase of products containing recycled material, rapidly renewing resources, locally harvested, sustainably harvested resources, and locally manufactured materials. The policy promotes the procurement of least toxic products especially low Mercury content lamps.

This green purchasing preference programs includes:

  • Products manufactured from recovered materials (recycled content products)
  • Environmentally preferable products
  • Energy efficient products
  • Bio-based products
  • Non-ozone depleting substances
  • Priority chemicals

3344 Peachtree Road encourages a few target purchasing percentages by cost. Approximately 60% of all the ongoing consumables purchases should be meet the sustainable purchasing criteria. For durable goods including electronics and furniture, 40% of the total purchases should meet one of more of the specific criteria to be labels a sustainable purchase. Materials used in facility alterations and additions should be at least 50% sustainable construction materials. In Mercury containing lamps, 90% of all lamps should have a mercury content of less than 90 picograms of mercury per lumen-hour or less than 70 picograms of mercury per lumen-hour, if possible.

 

IV. Procedures and Strategies

3344 Peachtree Road will purchase and use goods that are fiscally responsible, reduce resource consumption and waste, perform adequately, and promote human health and well-being. 3344 Peachtree Road will purchase and use products that have the least damaging/most beneficial environmental impact, including new environmentally preferable products, reusable products, and products containing recycled content. 3344 Peachtree Road will request that suppliers specify whether there is an alternative product that is environmentally preferable, and/or has recycled content and/or is recyclable, and/or is ENERGY STAR labeled that could be substituted. This purchasing policy will save operating costs through energy reduction.

Nia Steadley (Property Manager) is responsible for the following:

  1. Adopting and maintaining the Sustainable Purchasing Plan
  2. Working with vendors to ensure that purchased products and materials meet policy requirements.
  3. Evaluate current procedures, identify opportunities for improvement, and establish purchasing alternatives, when necessary.

 

V. Responsible Party

3344 Peachtree Road’s personnel responsible for procurement of the applicable goods and services and individuals planning meetings are responsible for ensuring sustainable purchasing. Individuals identified by 3344 Peachtree Road will be responsible for reporting their environmentally preferable purchases to the company. Before onsite contractors, without fixed contracts, are allowed in the building, Facility Management will confirm that they are in agreement with the established policies and programs.

Nia Steadley (Property Manager) will participate in establishing goals to increase the number of environmentally preferable, recyclable products or products that are made of recycled content.

 

VI. Time Period

This policy has been developed for 3344 Peachtree Road. Nia Steadley (Property Manager) approved the policy to become effective on September 1, 2022.  Upon approval, it will be implemented immediately and remain in effect until further notice.  Therefore, this program is pertinent from the effective date until an updated version is completed and adopted.

 

Indoor Air Quality Plan

Intent

The plan addresses all measure required by the US Green Building Council’s LEED‐v4 NC & CI Rating. The plan will meet and/ or exceed minimum recommendations set forth in SMACNA IAQ Guidelines for Occupied Buildings under Construction, 2nd Edition 2007, ANSI/ SMACNA 008-2008 (Chapter 3) and SMACNA duct cleanliness for new construction guidelines.

The intent of this Plan is to:

Repair or replacement of damaged or displaced coverings will occur immediately upon discovery, at the direction of the IAQ Representative.

·    Construction work that generates air pollution will be avoided where possible where ductwork or air handling equipment is being installed. If visible air pollutants are

present in a space where ductwork is to be installed, spot cleaning or other measures will be used to prevent ductwork or equipment or equipment contamination.

·    When performing construction activities that produce dust, such as drywall sanding, concrete cutting, masonry work, wood sawing or adding insulation, seal off the supply

diffusers and return air system openings completely for the duration of the task.

·    Shut down and seal off the supply diffusers and return air ducts during any demolition operations.

·    Whenever the HVAC system is not used during construction, seal off the supply diffusers and return air system openings to prevent the accumulation of dust and debris in the duct system.

 

 

Use of Mechanical Systems during Construction

 

The use of mechanical systems during construction will be subject to the following control and protection measures:

 

·    Exhaust and makeup air supply systems: when a system is operated during construction, its filters will be replaced upon completion.

·    AHU’s and MAU’s will be protected with a temporary filter having a minimum rating of

MERV 8 per ASHRAE 52.2‐1999.

·    Distribution elements needing filters, including all return air ductwork, will be protected with temporary filters having a minimum rating of MERV 8 per ASHRAE 52.21999 unless otherwise noted below.

·    If used for prolonged periods, filters will be periodically inspected and replaced if dirty.

·    All components of the distribution on the return side will be protected, including but not limited to:

o Return vents, ducts, and shafts;

o VAV box intakes;

o Heat Pump intakes;

o Transfer ducts.

·    Components of the distribution system on the supply side will typically not need

protection except:

o If portions of the supply system become contaminated, coarse filters will be applied to completely cover supply outlets, to prevent the distribution of particulates into building spaces.

o The outdoor air inlets will protected with minimum MERV 8 filters if the building mechanical systems are to be operated for ventilation during construction.

·    Do not use the mechanical rooms to store construction or waste materials. Keep rooms clean and neat.

 

Filter Replacement and Tracking

 

·    MERV 8 filters used for ductwork protection will be replaced on an as‐needed basis due to loading, as determined by the IAQ Representative, prior to building flush out, and prior to occupancy.

·    Air filters will be replaced when the pressure drop meets or exceeds the maximum threshold

·    Upon completion the MERV 8 filters used for ductwork protection will be discarded.

New filters will be installed at all air handlers and makeup units.

·    A cut sheet for each type of temporary filter used will be filed and included in the final submittal.

 

 

·    A schedule of the filter replacements (showing location, date, and filter type) will be recorded and included in the final Plan documentation (See Table IEQ3.1‐1)

 

 

Duct Cleaning

 

·    Provide periodic duct inspections during construction; if the ducts become contaminated due to inadequate protection, clean the ducts professionally in accordance with NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaning Association) standards.

·    Duct cleaning will be considered a last resort measure in the event of a failure of other measures. If duct cleaning is needed:

o The work will be done by experienced professionals skilled in the task, using specialized equipment and following the requirements of the General Specifications for the Cleaning of HVAC Systems referenced above.

o If it is found that duct liner, ductwork, or equipment is too contaminated to be cleaned successfully, it will be replaced at no cost to the Owner.

o If construction is underway at the completion of cleaning, all openings required to be sealed per this Plan will be resealed as soon as possible after cleaning.

o A log recording all duct cleaning that takes place during construction will be created, filed, and included in the final submittal.

o The party creating the pollution will bear the cost of cleaning, if the polluting work was done in violation of the Plan and if the party was properly informed before the violation per the provisions of this Plan.

Changing Work Practices

 

All construction workers will use work practices that reduce the generation and distribution of indoor air pollutants.  The IAQ Representative will conduct orientation sessions with affected construction workers and supervisors.  In these sessions, the IAQ Representative will review goals covering all aspects of the Plan, including HVAC protection, source control, pathway interruption, use of lowVOC products, housekeeping, and flush‐out.

 

Local Temporary Exhaust

 

Where available, operable vents and windows will be opened to ventilate the building during application of interior finishes when weather conditions are suitable. Spaces with fixed glazing or no windows will be vented by localized temporary exhaust, as described below, or by using building mechanical systems (described above).

 

 

·    Any local regulations concerning the discharge of particulates will be adhered to.

·    Local temporary exhaust will be accomplished using fans, duct extensions, and filters.

·    Local temporary exhaust will not discharge near air intakes or other openings that lead into the building.

·    When necessary to control odors, special filtration media such as potassium permanganate or activated charcoal will be used.

·    Building louvers may be temporarily removed, or the installation of fixed windows delayed for the placement of exhaust ductwork.

 

Covering or Sealing Sources of Pollution

 

The following rules apply to materials that emit air pollutants or odors:

 

·    Containers containing wet materials will be covered whenever they are not in active use.

·    Waste materials will be covered or sealed and regularly removed from the building.

·    Absorptive materials or materials with an odor will be covered while moved through the building.

 

·    Whenever possible, material containers will be disposed of with the covers on.

·    Enclosed tankers will be used for built‐up roofing instead of open kettles.

·    Materials that require a surface coating to control pollutants or odors will be coated promptly.

 

PATHWAY INTERRUPTION

Measures will be implemented to close or cover pathways between spaces through which pollutants could travel.

 

Controlling Pollution at Entrances

 

Measures will be taken to prevent pollutants from tracking into interior spaces by workers or equipment. These will include temporary walk‐off mats and floor protection.

 

Protection of Stored Materials

 

Measures will be taken to minimize dust accumulation on material surfaces and the absorption of other pollutants by absorbent materials. The measures will include the following:

 

·    Materials will be handled and stored according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

·    Unwrapped absorbent materials will be shrink‐wrapped if necessary.

·    Highly absorbent materials like duct liner, acoustic tile, carpeting, or insulation will be stored indoors in the original packaging, or covered and sealed.

·    Moderately porous materials like gypsum board will be stored indoors, wrapped or away from dust and materials prone to offgas VOC’s.

·    Framing lumber will be stored indoors whenever possible. If stored outdoors, the lumber will be (1) covered with a water proof covering, (2) stored off the ground, and (3) located away from standing water.

·    Dense material like glass, metal framing, ductwork and equipment will be covered and kept dry.

·    If condensation forms on cold material, care will be taken not to expose it to dust or other particles. If exposed to pollution, housekeeping measures will be used promptly to clean the material before installation.

 

Protection of Materials During and After Installation

 

·    No materials intended for dry installation will be installed wet.

·    No materials will be stored in rooms containing air‐handling equipment, other than materials intended for use there.

 

·    The IAQ Representative will determine appropriate measures to prevent water damage to materials not intended to be wet during construction, including temporary water barriers and/or water stops.

·    Subcontractors are required to notify the IAQ Representative of any condition in which a material may be moisture damaged. The IAQ Representative will inspect the material

and determine if it needs to be replaced.

·    Subcontractors who apply finishes without notifying the IAQ Representative of underlying water damage will be financially responsible for the cost of removing and

replacing all affected materials, and of related work, including investigating for mold spores.

 

Preventing Contamination of Completed Areas from Work under Construction

 

When work is completed in an area, the area will be protected from pollutants generated in other parts of the building still under construction. One or more of the following methods of pathway interruption will be used:

 

Erecting barriers between completed area and areas still under construction

 

Where present, doors and windows will be closed and locked between completed portions of the building and portions of the building still under construction. The closures will be further sealed with tape, plastic sheeting and/or sealant, if necessary.

 

Pressure differentials may be utilized to prevent contaminated air from entering clean areas.

 

HOUSEKEEPING

The following housekeeping measures will be employed as part of the Plan:

 

·    A regular housekeeping schedule will be instituted. Cleaning measures and frequency will be selected according to the pollutants generated in a space.

·    Provide regular cleaning concentrating on HVAC equipment and building spaces to remove contaminants from the building prior to occupancy.

·    All coils, air filters, fans and ductwork shall remain clean during installation and, if required, will be cleaned prior to performing the testing, adjusting and balancing of the systems.

·    Thoroughly clean all interior surfaces prior to replacing filters and running HVAC system for system balancing, commissioning and building flush out.

·    Remove accumulations of water inside the building. Protect porous materials such as insulation and ceiling tile from exposure to moisture.

 

 

·    Where applicable, suppress and minimize dust with low‐odor wetting agents or sweeping compounds.

·    Utilize efficient and effective dust collecting methods such as a damp cloth, wet mop, or vacuum with particulate filters or wet scrubber.

·    Low‐odor cleaning agents will be used.

·    Spills of water or solvent will be cleaned up immediately.

·    Attention will be given to cleaning hidden or hard‐to‐reach surfaces, such as wall cavities, tops of door, ledges, and behind water closets.

 

SCHEDULING

Construction activities shall be scheduled such that construction and move‐in / occupancy do not overlap in time. Construction will be substantially complete approximately two weeks prior to occupancy thereby allowing adequate time for flooring, paint and wall coverings time to off‐ gas.

 

All material deliveries will be scheduled so that materials are installed quickly and storage is minimized. Sawing, sanding, and cutting wood and metals will be completed in the designated and unoccupied area outside the tenant space. All wood should arrive pre‐finished to avoid the strong odor from coating wood within a confined space. Installation of all products requiring epoxy should be completed after‐hours due to odor potential.

 

The air handling units serving the areas of work will be shut down during drywall sanding so as to limit contaminating the mechanical system and minimize dust migration throughout the space. Additionally, the mechanical system will be covered and protected during drywall sanding. No ductwork will be installed while drywall is being sanded. Vacuum sanding equipment will be utilized to limit drywall dust.

 

Schedule high pollution activities that utilize high VOC level products (including paints, sealers, insulation, adhesives, caulking and cleaners) to take place prior to installing highly absorbent materials (such as ceiling tiles, gypsum wall board, fabric furnishings, carpet and insulation). These materials will act as ‘sinks’ for VOCs, odors and other contaminants, and release them later after occupancy.

 

Procedures

 

The following sequencing procedures will be coordinated by the IAQ Representative:

·    Caulks, sealants, and joint fillers will be applied prior to installing carpets or acoustical ceiling tiles.

·    Painting of interior walls, soffits, doors, frames, etc. (with the exception of touch‐up work) will occur prior to installing carpets or acoustical ceiling tiles.

·    Painted areas will be allowed a minimum 48 hour drying period before carpets or acoustical ceiling tiles are installed. Only low‐VOC paints and primers will be used.

·    Where feasible, a primer coat of paint will be applied to gypsum wallboard prior to the application of caulks, sealants, and joint fillers.

·    Custom architectural millwork items will be finished off‐site and delivered to the site after a minimum 48 hour curing period.

·    Fabric‐covered systems furniture panels and upholstered furniture will be installed after all other finish work is complete, and after flush‐out is complete.

To ensure that the expectations of the tenants are being met, the property has a system for addressing any issues related to indoor air quality:

  1. A member of the property team will record the complaint, and within the complaint they will request the following information: Tenant and individual filing complaint, date and time received, individual that received the complaint, and the nature of the issue.
  2. Property team member that received the complaint will alert the appropriate staff at the building, including Building and Facilities Managers.
  3. A response will be provided to the tenant that is filing the complaint. Notes will be taken during the conversation and/or emails retained for record.
  4. Facilities team or other responsible property team members will investigate the issue and remedy any issues. The results of the investigation and actions take will be recorded.
  5. Property team member will reach out to tenant with actions taken for the resolution of the complaint. Notes will be taken during conversation and/or emails retained for record.

 

IAQ Management Strategies

IAQ Inspections

As part of the standard operating procedures at the building, indoor air quality inspections are performed on a weekly basis. The facilities engineering team performs the walk-throughs to determine any issues within the building. If any issues are observed, the facilities team record the issue in the building ticket system. It is strictly prohibited to block ventilation supply or exhaust ducts or other grilles throughout the building and engineers are instructed to bring this to the attention of tenants in violation.

 

Pest Management

To ensure the cleanliness of the building and site, integrated pest management is employed at the property to make certain that pest issues are addressed in a timely manner and handled with the most appropriate response. The pest control vendor is well versed in providing an integrated approach to pest management and the use of least toxic measures is always a first consideration to ensure the safety of tenants and the technician. 

 

HVAC

Preventive Maintenance is performed at the property by the facilities staff and contractors when needed. The preventive maintenance program includes the inspection, cleaning and service of the following items: outdoor air intake opening, damper controls, air filters, drip pans, cooling and heating coils, fan belts, humidification equipment and controls, distribution systems, and exhaust fans.

 

Moisture Control

Facilities Teams, specifically building engineers, are responsible for performing daily building walk-throughs as part of the standard operating procedures. During these walk-throughs, building engineers will inspect the grounds for moisture control issues, such as standing water or leaks, and inform property management immediately of any issues identified. If tenants detect moisture issues within their space, they are to inform property management, from there a maintenance ticket will be created and assigned to a building engineer.

 

Tobacco Smoke

Ownership and management operate commercial real estate that provides a healthy and tobacco-free environment for its tenants and employees. Th building has strict guidelines with regards to tobacco smoke control. Smoking signage is present at the property, conveying the restriction of smoking near entrances and on the property.

 

Pollutant Control

Management holds pollutant control at the utmost importance to ensure a safe and contaminant free building environment for tenants and employees. The building is equipped with proper entryway systems, such as walk off mats and/or grates, to mitigate the amount of pollutants brought into the building by occupants. As a standard operating procedure, all building walk-throughs include visual inspections for mold to ensure the safety of all building occupants.

To ensure the building provides a safe indoor environment for their tenants and employees, regular preventive maintenance is performed to ensure all building systems are operating optimally.

 

Chemical Storage

It is management’s commitment to our tenants and their patients to ensure a clean and safe working environment. As such, any area where chemicals are stored, an inventory of the material safety data sheets (MSDS) is maintained. All chemical storage areas are properly ventilated to ensure the safeguarding of the indoor air quality of the building, and the storage areas are routinely monitored for cleanliness during IAQ inspections and walkthroughs.

 

Tenant Housekeeping

Tenants within the building are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their workspace. Routine office cleaning is performed daily which includes but is not limited to surface cleaning, vacuuming, bathroom mopping/cleaning, collecting trash and recyclables from receptacles. It is the responsibility of the tenant to maintain any and all biophilia within their office space, though it is recommended to maintain them regularly to promote healthy indoor air quality within the workspace. Additionally, it is within the tenants control to ensure the proper storage of perishable food items and to regularly clean their refrigerators/freezers to limit unwanted odors, however, tenants can request this service from base building janitorial services at the tenants’ expense. Any complaints of bothersome odors or uncomfortable indoor air quality issues in any portion of the building will be reported to management and addressed immediately. To maintain a healthy workplace environment, tenants are requested to adhere to the guidance listed herein and to their own company policies within their space.
