Course Description

ACES logo

With the shift towards energy efficient buildings, few architects, builders or building designers have considered the adverse impact this may have on the health of the occupants. New homes have become so ‘air tight’ they have come at the cost of human health. Poor passive ventilation has resulted in increased condensation issues and mould complaints, and poor indoor air quality arising from the chemicals outgassing from building materials and imported furnishings.

This course provides the knowledge and the skills to assess a building material’s effect on human health and its impact on indoor air quality, including analysis of toxic vapours, radioactivity and electroclimate. The building biology principles that underpin good building design are described with a focus on suitable designs for temperate, hot humid and arid climates. For more details about the course see building a healthy home.

Upon successful completion, students will receive a nationally accredited Statement of Attainment. The units of competence for this course form part of the Advanced Diploma of Building Biology (10194NAT).
