Reopening Commercial Buildings:
Evaluating Your HVAC System’s Readiness to Mitigate the Spread of SARS-CoV-2
Tuesday, September 8, 2020 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET
Thursday, September 10 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET
As businesses navigate reopening and resume operations, building owners, managers, and facilities teams across New York are working hard to develop safe reopening plans amid changing standards and requirements for their buildings. At this time, experts indicate that ventilation, filtration, and air cleaning provided by HVAC systems can reduce the airborne concentration of SARS-CoV-2, and thus reduce the risk of transmission through the air.
In collaboration with NYSERDA, ASHRAE will be hosting an educational webinar to expand the information and details provided in the online ASHRAE COVID-19 details for reopening buildings and the Building Readiness Plan for HVAC systems. The purpose of this webinar is to further explore available mitigation strategies and help identify the best approach for your specific building, its systems specific arrangement, and your needs.
This webinar will be held on Tuesday, September 8 and on Thursday, September 10. You only need to register for one session.
Join us for this webinar to learn:
How to develop and implement a Building Readiness Plan
- Different engineering controls that can be applied to systems typically found in buildings
How to address concerns about your current and future designs
This webinar is being offered at no charge
