As building owners, operators, and developers adapt to a hybrid work model, creating a welcoming office space is more important than ever. In an article for Propmodo’s Perspectives series, ESD now Stantec Senior Acoustics Project Manager Scott Hamilton shares his views on the evolution of the open office and why acoustics play such a critical role to the health, comfort, and productivity of returning workers.

After almost two years of pandemic shutdowns, building designers, owners, and operators are looking for ways to make the return to offices safer and healthier for occupants. Improving air handling systems plays a key role.
ESD Senior Managing Director Mehdi Jalayerian will be presenting “Ventilation Systems Strategies to Improve Indoor Air Quality and Occupant Health” at an upcoming summit focused on achieving operational excellence in facilities. During his presentation, Jalayerian will review ventilation systems strategies to improve the effectiveness of the HVAC systems at the primary air systems level as well as the air distribution at the occupied zone. The session will focus on solutions that fulfill the objective of improving occupant health and safety while maintaining economic performance for buildings.
Hosted by FacilitiesNet, registration for the virtual event on February 16 is open and free to all fnPrime members.
As Senior Managing Director, Mehdi Jalayerian regularly shares his knowledge about major high-rise and supertall buildings, convention and hotel facilities, and educational/government projects to promote ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
