Provide acceptable indoor air quality
Improve occupant well-being
Reduce IAQ liability
Air distribution effectiveness in reaching the breathing zone is essential in open office configurations. Ventilation air is needed to ensure that high levels of IAQ quality are maintained to support productivity. Many public and private organization offices use these layouts and depend on the competitive advantages that productivity in the work space provides them. EBTRON has demonstrated expertise ensuring open office spaces receive ventilation air by monitoring the air flow to be controlled by the building.
Entrance lobbies can incorporate transitional areas from the street or garage levels, elevator interchanges, reception areas and temporary meeting spaces for vendors. The nature of the differences between them brings some challenges in ventilation and pressurization design. Pressurization flow control is needed to stop humidity, heat/cold and moisture before they migrate into the occupied space. A variety of entry portal devices helps, but pressure flow is needed to offset most internal/external sources of pressure to avoid violations of ADA provisions on door opening/closing forces. Elevator traffic and the elevators’ influence on stack pressure flow needs to be considered, as well. How well these major issues are addressed can dictate how building visitors are welcomed and if the use of the reception area can be diversified for better space utilization.
