Healthy Buildings Platform for Indoor Air Quality

Ventilation and indoor air quality are more important than ever within enclosed environments including workplaces, offices, schools, hospitals and public buildings.

With the help of our friends at Aircuity we can now provide a platform for your healthy building strategy to measure, manage and communicate indoor air quality all the time. Monitor the indicators of indoor air quality including carbon dioxide, particles, TVOCs, temperature and relative humidity.

Recommendations

Healthy Building Targets For Real Time Monitoring

PARAMETERTARGET
Ventilation¹> 15 L/s per person
Building Pressurisation+ 2.5 to 10 Pa
Total Volatile organic Compounds²< 500 μg/m³
Micro Respiratory Particles (0.3 – 0.5 microns)TBD
PM 2.5 (0.5 – 2.5 microns)< 15 μg/m³
Carbon Monoxide< 9 ppm
Carbon Dioxide200-500 ppm differential above outdoor air
Relative Humidity40 – 60%
  1. Deploy thermal dispersion sensor for most accurate and repeatable measurement of air velocity
  2. Deploy PID and MOS sensor for most accurate measurement of TVOCs
  3. Research for target of this particular range is ongoing

We recommend supplementing real time monitoring with more targeted sampling on an annual basis, at a minimum, using traditional air-sampling approaches ( industrial hygiene methods).
