Abstract

Studies have found that the quality of the indoor air affects the short term or long term health problem especially among children and elderly. Lack of supervision from local authorities regarding the safety and health welfare of indoor environment and quality become one of the main factor to this matter especially in schools. This study was carried out to determine the indoor air quality (IAQ) status for the portable cabin classroom in Adni Bangi School and compare the IAQ status with a classroom that use bricks and cement as the classroom structure in Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Beruang. IAQ parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity (RH), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matter (PM10) were measured during the assessment during the school hours. The IAQ results were compared with the industry code of practice (ICOP 2010) and it was found that the concentration of CO2 in Adni Bangi School classroom exceed the allowable limit which the average mean for 8 hours exposure is 1619.4 ppm. Meanwhile the classroom in Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Beruang shows that the air temperature and RH is beyond the ICOP 2010 limits due to natural ventilation system that totally depends on the outside weather. It shows that inadequate ventilation system, poor classroom layout and number of occupants affects the concentration of CO2 in the portable classroom. It is hope that the study will able help future researcher or building developer to use it as a guideline to control the IAQ status to provide friendlier indoor environment while reducing the risk of health problems among the occupants.
