Examining the Feasibility of Installing a Greenwall in the Dalhousie Life Science Centre
MetadataShow full item record
This study took place at Dalhousie University on Studley Campus; the purpose of this feasibility analysis was to determine if Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and aesthetics issues are present in the Life Science Centre (LSC) and to determine the usefulness and benefit of a greenwall in addressing these issues. The study used the triangulation technique of research, which included interviews, case studies and a survey. Based on research and information gathered we determined that there were IAQ and aesthetics issues negatively affecting the LSC, and that benefits derived from the implementation of a greenwall would help to mitigate these issues. However, due to lack of information concerning possible economic costs or benefits derived from a greenwall, we were forced to conclude that further study is necessary.
