AbstractA study was conducted to investigate the relationship between ventilation, air quality, and acoustics and building design concept in green, conventional, and non-green buildings. The study also investigated the relationship between environmental factors and building design concept of these buildings. It was found that the introduction of a new type of HVAC system influences the ventilation, air quality, and acoustical qualities directly. Spaces in green and non-green buildings were selected in such a way that different types of ventilation concepts/systems were investigated in the study, to evaluate the environmental factors comprehensively. Some of the environmental factors measured and investigated, include background-noise levels and ventilation.
