The

Assessment

Process

Discovery

Let’s get on the same page!

  • We’ll start of by talking about your construction ideas, concerns, interests and questions, as well as what you’d like to accomplish in building, remodeling, or renovating.
  • From there, we go over current health symptoms or preexisting health conditions, if any, and what you’ve tried.
  • Next, Lynne will propose an Assessment for you to review and decide what you’d like to do.

During this step, Lynne will educate you on the key indoor environmental risks, and some easy tips for reducing exposure.

Assessment

Using the 33-year proven Building Biology Institute’s (BBI) building science and physics approach, Lynne gets to work on:

  • assessing your space (i.e., building) by testing, identifying and recording measured findings, as applicable
  • comparing those measurements against Building Biology’s No-Slight-Severe-Extreme Concern Health Guidelines
  • indicating what needs No-Recommended-Definite-Immediate Action, so you may easily prioritize.

During the Assessment step, education and tips continue.

Findings & Suggestions

In this final step, Lynne makes a determination of up to three tiered Good-Better-Best Options for healthier construction and indoor environment solutions, as best as possible. These suggestions are done verbally and/or in a handwritten report packed with a hefty Appendix of Information and Resources. Need a more formal report? Just ask.

You choose what to implement or not, and to what degree and when. If you need assistance from Lynne in implementing any suggestions, that may be explored here, or at a later date – call anytime.
