CASE STUDY: Commissioning process of Upper-Air GUV in Lake Hills Church Facilities (TX-USA) according to ASHRAE GPC 37 Guideline
On March 2023 we successfully applied to be part of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) study on Upper Air GIUV for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The Study is about evaluating Upper-Air GUV technology as an energy-efficient approach to improve indoor air quality, reduce the spread of diseases in buildings, and prepare for future epidemics or pandemics.
We focused on the Commissioning Process embedded in the GPC 37 Guideline document. Such document known as "Guideline (ANSI/ASHRAE/IES) 202 and 90.1," is a technical guide developed by ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), ANSI (American National Standards Institute), and IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) to provide guidelines on how the two ASHRAE standards, namely 202 and 90.1, can be implemented synergistically to enhance energy efficiency in commercial and industrial buildings.
We selected the Lake Hills Church Facilities in Austin, Texas (US) as the partner site to perform our field evaluation study. We actively execute every phase of the commissioning process, gathering valuable insights and crafting an exceptionally informative report that encompasses comprehensive details of each of the five project phases:
Upon project completion, we were extended an invitation by the IUVA (International Ultraviolet Association) to present our field research findings at the IUVA World Conference scheduled for September 2023 in Dubai, UAE.
Comprehensive explanations regarding the cutting-edge commissioning of Upper Air GUV applications have been provided, along with concluding thoughts emphasizing the importance of fostering alignment and collaboration among various stakeholders in the process, including manufacturers, resellers, installers, purchasers, and end-users.
