Challenge: Increase property value with “green” and sustainable building design criteria and state -of -the art indoor air quality. The renovation called for adding three floors to an existing eight story office building, replacing the mechanical systems, and doing so without interrupting daily business activities.

Solution: Dynamic V8 Air Cleaning Systems were factory -installed in the 175,000cfm custom air handling unit prior to the entire unit being lifted into place.

Results: The IAQ solution proved to be cost efficient and sustainable. Maintenance costs were reduced dramatically from the previous HVAC system. As of May 2011, media life has exceeded three (3) years (and counting). At full air -flow pressure drop during the first three years has increased only .1” W.G.
