The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live.  As businesses and schools start to reopen, healthy buildings are the new minimum.  But healthy buildings are not just a short-term need.  Buildings are tools for fostering long-term occupant health, and improvements now will prepare us to manage through COVID-19 and beyond.

Carrier Global Corporation, a leading global supplier of air conditioning solutions, has long understood that technology has an important role to play in buildings and the health of their inhabitants, and has been closely involved in studies with Harvard University on healthy buildings and wellbeing.

In this presentation, Mr Paul TSUI will sum up the key points from a series of lectures delivered by Carrier and Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He will then go on to discuss new technologies and strategies in air conditioning system that can contribute to healthy buildings.

Key Points:

  • Quick review on summary of findings from a series of sponsored studies on healthy buildings by Harvard University.
  • Foundation of healthy buildings and the important role of HVAC system.
  • Healthy building approach in three stages:  Assessment, Improvement, New Operation Technologies.
  • Assessment approach to learn the gap to healthy buildings, what to do and where to focus.
  • On Improvement, there are so many new products on air filtration but can they all be integrated into HVAC systems?   We learned the importance of fresh air in healthy buildings, but how practical it is to increase ventilation flow in existing installations?
  • New Operation Technologies: how IoT and control technologies are changing to address the new norm in Building Management System.
