The effectiveness of Ambient Air Quality is maintained at just the best levels. With Triple Air Filters, conforming to Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values (MERV) ratings of 13,7 and 6. Installation of additional fresh air fans with HEPA filters supplying 60% enhanced fresh air helped to keep CO2 levels well below 600 ppm, PM2.5, and PM10 levels below 10 ppm within the facility.
Occupants can monitor the air quality through their mobile phones using the eFACiLiTY® Smart FM App. When air quality levels exceed thresholds, occupants who are highly sensitive to air quality issues will receive alerts based on their location allowing them to move out and Facility Teams will also receive mobile alerts that enable them to take remedial actions quickly. The Air Quality that is maintained inside SIERRA’s eFACiLiTY® building equals the standards maintained inside hospitals and General Surgery. Also, these High rating control contaminants like Bacteria, droplet nuclei (sneeze), cooking oil, Smoke, Insecticide dust, face powder, and even paint pigments.
Other measures implemented to improve the air quality in the building are:
The smoking ban, optimized mechanical and natural ventilation, and VOC reduction in adhesives, finishes, furniture, and cleaning products. Formaldehyde (HCHO) level monitoring is also carried out regularly across all zones.
Live Monitoring of Fundamental Air Quality Parameters: Installed IoT and traditional sensors for live monitoring of PM 2.5, PM 10, CO2, TVOCs, and Humidity levels, zone-wise, and control the fresh air intake in real-time.
Energy Dashboards display the air quality parameters and monitor individual space air quality, so occupants have the provision to operate – open/close windows if outdoor air quality is better than indoor air quality, as suggested by smart mobile application alerts.
Deployed fully automated Demand Controlled Ventilation for improved air quality and high energy efficiency with live monitoring of CO2, TVOCs, PM 2.5, and PM 10 levels across all zones.
Chemicals present in cleaning and disinfectant products can affect air quality. Steam Cleaners help save 75% water, there is absolutely no rise in the dust during cleaning, it uses just plain water (no detergents), and more importantly, generate dry steam reaching up to 160°C that kills 99.99% germs (better than powerful chemical disinfectants). So, using steam cleaners, our high-touch surfaces, floors, toilets, kitchen, and dining areas are disinfected every single day, using just 1/4th of water and absolutely no chemicals.
