Omaha & Lincoln Section Meeting

Air Treatment 101 with Kim Cowman and Josh Roth

Zoom Meeting, Link provided upon registration and payment

Tuesday, November 10th; presentation starts at 12:00 p.m.

Air Surrounds us at all times. On any given day we breathe over 15,000 liters of air, more than the volume of water and food we put into our bodies combined. But the quality of air in our indoor environments is often unknown. This presentation will cover the codes, standards, technologies and strategies that currently exist to address and improve air quality for better productivity and health indoors, and also discuss how we plan for the future and unforeseen non-normative conditions as the industry looks to implement resiliency in design and operations.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the benefits of good indoor air quality (IAQ)
  • Relate IAQ benefits to better productivity and health for occupants
  • Review codes & standards that address IAQ
  • Differentiate technologies and strategies to improve IAQ
  • Identify resilience planning opportunities for the future and unforeseen conditions
