While we can’t completely eliminate the threat of COVID-19 from buildings, there are a number of practical steps that can be taken to reduce the potential exposure to harmful viruses for building occupants.

Participants will hear from Greg Brenner and Ray Doyle with WB Engineers + Consultants as they discuss short-term solutions – including electrostatic cleaning, dilution ventilation, and maintenance for plumbing systems. These are steps that can be implemented even while buildings are unoccupied. The speakers will also address long-term investments associated with a building’s MEP equipment – including UVGI, PCO, and filtration. And finally, they will answer the big question: How much does this cost?

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what buildings can and should do to reduce potential exposure to COVID-19
  • Explain short-term solutions for MEP systems, including maintenance for plumbing systems, electrostatic cleaning, and dilution ventilation
  • Understand long-term systems MEP system modifications, including MERV filters, UVGI, PCO, ionization systems and humidification
  • Explore costs for various solutions
