ESD’s work on the Las Vegas Convention Center continues to win acclaim for its application of innovative design and effective use of energy—this time with an honorable mention for the 2023 ASHRAE Award for Engineering Excellence. (Learn more about ASHRAE Technology Awards.)
Given the pandemic, it’s the right time to deploy a state-of-the-art indoor air quality (IAQ) program.
ESD, Cohesion and Riverside Investment & Development have teamed up to integrate engineering, technology and real estate to deliver a program that offers enhanced levels of safety, comfort and assurance to occupants as they return to 150 N. Riverside in Chicago, as reported by REJournals. The program combines secondary air purification, the most advanced commercial filtration system on the market, ventilation rates that significantly exceed national standards and 24/7/365 indoor air quality and pollutant measurement and verification.
Rigorously tested for safety and efficacy, the recently procured bipolar ionization air cleaning system will clean pollutants and pathogens from the air and surfaces. In addition, air quality sensors are being installed throughout the 1.2-million-square-foot property, and Cohesion’s Intelligent Building Platform will connect to the building’s automation and controls systems to monitor eight separate air quality components, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, VOCs, airborne particulates, ozone, radon, formaldehyde and outdoor fresh air supply rates.
Employing connected systems and the ability to measure indoor air quality and pollutants provides building operators the visibility to their building’s air quality status, so they are informed and know what to change to improve it. This integration of engineering, technology and real estate also provides the transparency necessary for tenant peace of mind.
