Wisconsin Executive Order 145 requires a minimum indoor air quality approaches to construction; and, minimal ventilation requirements for indoor environmental quality that meet the current version of ASHRAE, now ASHRAE 62.1- 2004 Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality.

The campus is also mindful of all ASHRAE standards and sets building HVAC systems accordingly. The Division of Facilities Development (DFD) sets forth the policies for state owned facilities.
