ATLANTA - Healthy, sustainable buildings are those that create high quality indoor environments while minimizing their impacts on the outdoor environment. But achieving both can be a challenging goal.

Guidance on how to do so will be presented at the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) conference, IAQ 2007 Healthy and Sustainable Buildings, which will be held Oct. 15-17, 2007, at Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

"The issues of healthy and sustainable buildings are cyclical and interdependent," Lawrence J. Schoen, P.E., chair of the conference, said. "Buildings not only impact the indoor environment but they have an impact on the outside environment. Our goal in creating healthy buildings should be to create indoor environments where people are healthy and productive but that minimize impact on the environment."

The conference will emphasize the measured performance of healthy and sustainable buildings and practical methods for their design, construction, operation, and maintenance, according to Schoen.
