This is a little bit out of left field, but I’m curious if any of our readers work for consulting firms who incorporate some community service or some variation on pro bono design work into their company’s culture.
Budgets, codes, and technologies are constantly shifting and evolving. These days, even the classrooms are often portable. Staying one step ahead will depend on your knowledge of current design options and how to integrate them into the space.
ASHRAE 170 is just the baseline for the fight against hospital acquired infections (HAIs). The ongoing human and financial tolls taken by these infections point to the need for engineers and facilities to raise their IAQ game wherever possible. Move beyond the minimum and get into the what, where, and how of HEPA filtration, ultraviolet technology, and catalytic air cleaners.
The history of our battle against infections and airborne disease is fascinating. Expand your knowledge and then sharpen your process for evaluating product options to craft better strategies for reducing these health risks.
