tOD’s awareness for a healthy indoor environmental quality has led to contract Opus for an on-site mission to tOD office at Beirut Central District to diagnose the HVAC system.
The on-site mission consisted of:
– 4 site surveys to assess the system performance and applicability of potential solutions
– System measurement visits to determine air and water flow rates and temperatures
– Site visits to install and dismantle the power logging equipment
– Several visits to install the IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) loggers at different locations
Opus came up afterwards with a series of findings that require corrective measures.
For example, part of the indoor increasing temperature is resulting from the double-glass façade and the stacked heat effect between the 2 layers. This can be solved by installing 10 small ventilation fans above the false ceiling, collecting hot air from the void via grills and discharging it to the outside.
