Abstract: This paper presents a work of field measurements on thermal environmental conditions and indoor air quality (IAQ) factors in a primary school located near an industrial zone in Northern Peninsular Malaysia. In this study, four rooms were chosen, and measurements were performed for eight hours from October 2014 to November 2014. The thermal environmental conditions and IAQ parameters were measured following class-II protocol of field measurements. This includes measurements of air temperature, globe thermometer temperature, average radiant temperature, relative humidity, air movement, particulate PM, carbon dioxide and airborne bacteria. Results were analysed and compared with existing standards on thermal environmental conditions and IAQ Malaysia Code of Practice on Indoor Air Quality 2010 DOSH Malaysia, ASHRAE Standard 55, Singapore Indoor Air Quality Standard and ISO Standard 7730.
