Abstract: While focussed on the office environment, this reference is equally applicable to the school environment, which is also full of "knowledge workers". The authors present a myriad of facility issues, in the context of how buildings and occupants perform as a functional unit - a perspective called total building performance. Including discussions of ventilation and indoor air quality, this reference will help school board building managers set their goals for healthier schools in a larger context of efficient and rational building design and management.
