CPD Webinar - A Revolutionary Design for Ventilation in the Built Environment - Air Induction Unit (AIU)

The webinar will be available at HKGBC CPD Online Training Portal (https://onlinecpdtraining.hkgbc.org.hk/) later after the event.
Please stay tuned.

This webinar is organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.

Building, energy, comfort and the environment are key issues for mankind. In hot and humid regions like Hong Kong and Singapore, mechanical ventilation is a common strategy to remove heat and moisture from non-air-conditioned spaces. Given the intensive development of green building technology over the past two decades, people nowadays expect the design of a comfortable built environment with energy-efficient measures. 

The Air Induction Unit (AIU), a ventilating device, has therefore been invented to enhance thermal comfort of a space by inducing a large volume of air moving gently. Additionally, the AIU enhances the quality of the built environment due to its streamlined design and quiet operation. The design of the AIU also simplifies maintenance requirements and its performance effectiveness reduces overall building energy use which consequently reduces the negative impact to the environment. 

AIU has received numerous awards including the CIC Construction Innovation Awards and was added to the CIC Innovation product list. In this webinar, we will look at the development of the AIU and its working principles, identify potential applications and evaluate its performance against traditional wallmounted fans.
