2 min read

UL Solutions recently launched UL Verified Healthy Building Mark for New Construction, an indoor environmental quality (IEQ) verification designation for building construction projects.

The designation is designed for new commercial, residential, and industrial construction projects to help customers differentiate their project and appeal to potential occupants by demonstrating a commitment to better indoor environmental quality, according to a UL Solutions news release.

“As part of the process toward verification, UL Solutions empowers developers to make key choices to optimize indoor environmental health and wellness from the early stages of a project, potentially avoiding more costly and time-consuming changes after completing construction or improvements,” the release says.

Customers can achieve one of four verification options:

• UL Verified Healthy Building for New Construction Core and Shell – Designed for base building construction or redevelopment projects where less than 50% of the project’s gross square footage is fit out at the time of project completion; confirms policies for optimizing indoor environmental quality during and after construction; on-site verification of indoor air quality conditions prior to build-out

• UL Verified Healthy Building for New Construction Indoor Air – Designed for fully built-out buildings or tenant spaces where more than 50% of the project’s gross square footage is fit out at the time of project completion; confirms policies for optimizing indoor environmental quality during and after construction; on-site verification of indoor air quality conditions prior to occupancy.

• UL Verified Healthy Building for New Construction Indoor Air and Water – Designed for fully built-out buildings or tenant spaces where more than 50% of the project’s gross square footage is fit out at the time of project completion; confirms policies for optimizing indoor environmental quality during and after construction; on-site verification of indoor air and water quality conditions prior to occupancy.

• UL Verified Healthy Building for New Construction Residential – Designed for multi-family residential construction projects where more than 50% of the project’s gross square footage is fit out at the time of project completion; confirms policies for optimizing indoor environmental quality during construction; on-site verification of indoor air and water quality conditions prior to occupancy.

The verification process incorporates on-site measurements and visual inspections.
