If your line of work has you involved in pharmaceutical laboratory construction or retrofitting, chances are very good that the topic of conversation has, at some recent point, turned to USP 797, a set of guidelines for preparing prescription drugs.
From the start, the Building by Daman was to stand out as an architectural marvel among the cityscape of Dubai, UAE -- one that was already a testament to man’s limitless achievements in building design and construction.
As discussed in my last post, indoor air quality (IAQ) is of critical concern in hospitals and other medical facilities where airborne contaminants are particularly hazardous to both patients and medical workers.
Indoor air quality is a concern in any commercial environment but it is particularly significant in hospitals and other healthcare facilities where the spread of environmental and airborne pathogens can have particularly serious consequences.
The 2015 outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in New York sparked interest in duct sealing that continues to this day. Immediately following reports of the outbreak, contractors reported a surge of inquires from property owners and facility managers wanting more information about the role that duct leakage played in the spread of the disease.
Most buildings in the U.S. today are plagued by the poor indoor air quality and high-energy usage issues that come from improper ventilation. But now that a simple, non-intrusive solution, in the form of aerosol-based duct sealing is available, property owners are addressing the problems head on.
The amount of air required to be delivered to a given space by an HVAC system is based primarily on the number of people occupying the space, the type and amount of equipment, and the overall size of the space.
The University of Ottawa Heart Institute turned to an innovative approach to duct sealing to solve one problem, and wound up solving two.
These 10 megatrends will continue to accelerate the growth of low-carbon green buildings, adoption of renewable energy in buildings, and promote water-conserving architectural designs for the next 10 years.
It’s time to tell others that secret that industry professionals have been keeping for so long.
