Proper ventilation system in any establishment must be observed for the convenience and occupational safety of the occupants. In this study, an indoor air quality and carbon dioxide level in the main production area of a semiconductor company was assessed within an eleven-hour observation. Based on data analysis, it was evident that the electronics company did not comply with the indoor air quality standards. Through velocity method, a mechanical ventilation design with specific duct sizes and needed blowers were made. This proposed design can be applied to other type of buildings such commercial or industrial type, schools, etc.
