Email request from ex student 25/03/2010

Hi Brian
Thank you for the info. Ive been told by tutor that my project lacks actual evidence from ‘independent peer group research’ The companies or people that I have quoted from or researched could be conceived as people ‘with an axe to grind’ or rather they have green credentials etc.

She believes that I need some scientific and independent, British evidence that indoor air quality in modern day buildings is dangerous because of the materials used and future air tightness levels.

Can you help please? Thank you.
Regards,
Karla
