One of the greatest factors affecting the indoor air quality within a building is the air outside. Dispersion modeling addresses the relationship of environmental factors between an existing or planned building and its surroundings. For instance, if a newly built hospital facility is next to a laboratory that has exhaust emissions, it is necessary to understand how those emissions are dispersed and how and if they will affect the new hospital and its occupants. EH&E can provide a client with complete dispersion modeling services, including:
Identification and development of appropriate scenarios for a particular site.
Access to government approved and private sector computer models and the skills to operate them.
Interpretation of the quantitative results so that the client can make an informed decision.
This type of modeling provides owners and the building design team the ability to design structures that will not be negatively affected by outside contaminants.
