While many of the aforementioned factors affect project completion deadlines, ventilation selection is a hedge architects, consulting engineers, and HVAC contractors are using to expedite projects toward completion once mechanical equipment finally arrives on-site and is installed.
Using an overhead high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan’s bi-directional airflow and elevated air speed is a powerful way to improve ventilation, thereby reducing the concentration of airborne pathogens through dilution. Occupant comfort can be assured in applications ranging from non-conditioned industrial spaces to commercial buildings.
An airtight building enclosure is an important part of a modern building. Airtightness is achieved with an effective air barrier system that is carefully designed, detailed, and then built and commissioned in the field. An effective air barrier consists of a continuous system of materials, components, and accessories, not an individual product.
Except as a tool to connect with one another or conduct research, how important can Wi-Fi really be to design/construction professionals? B.C. expert Stefan Storey has created a system that adjusts ventilation according to the number of Wi-Fi users in a space.
With an appropriate strategy and design, a naturally ventilated structure can be comfortable for all occupants, including those in a multi-storey building. This article examines how natural ventilation fits into mixed-mode setups, safety considerations for building occupants, and esthetic features, and also explores how it can relieve engineers of issues associated with pairing an off-the-shelf actuator with a standard window.
