Five members of our company had attended the technical talk on Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Issues and Assessment Strategies organised by the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), Singapore Chapter on the 26th of February 2018. Mr Derrick A. Dennis, a vastly experience environmental consultant and educator, shared his experience and knowledge related to the investigation of IAQ issues.
It was an enriching and informative event for all of us because of the many pointers and relevant experience knowledge he has shared with us. For example, Mr Dennis was sharing about how we, as investigators, should look at places where people do not usually take two glances at. Where a building has a locked room that nobody has access to, or at areas that are not at eye level, it is these places that should be given more attention during our investigation.
We had the opportunity to expose ourselves to his knowledge and assessment strategies and put these pointers to use in our own projects. This event has benefitted and reminded us that as Indoor environmental consultants, it is our duty to help our clients with our professional knowledge as well as share valuable insights and experiences with people in the same field.
