Indoor environment quality IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) and the impact on the quality of wellbeing and comfort of the residents and users of the building is a valid and important area of research. The article presents the state of the art and themethod of determining the rate of IEQdescribing the expected comfort of building occupants. The scope of the issues examined in order to determine IEQ includes class air quality, thermal comfort, acoustic comfort and visual combined with the quality of lighting. The literature review found that project teams of buildings should take into account the parameters of the well-being of building occupants from the very beginning of the design process. The knowledge contained in the article can be useful and helpful for designers, investors, engineers, building managers, users and maintenance of equipment installation. The article can also be useful for young scientists who intend to study the comfort of use of buildings and can be considered as a starting point for directing further research.Measurements of parameters of the internal environment is an important element of the environmental assessments of buildings.

Keywords: sustainable building, IEQ, building comfort, indor air quality, thermal comfort.
