Aircuity announces it will begin installation of its intelligent building platform and perform upgrades to controls and exhaust systems, at laboratory research buildings on the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine campus. Aircuity is acting as the single turnkey contractor for the works.

 

Part of an $18 million performance contract between the university and Schneider Electric, the Aircuity system will decrease the energy usage in Sanger Hall, Kontos Hall, and Robert Blackwell Smith Hall. The energy savings from Aircuity will be used to address deferred maintenance projects in two of the buildings, including controls upgrades in both Kontos and Robert Blackwell Smith Halls and a consolidation of rooftop exhaust fans in Robert Blackwell Smith Hall. 

 

In addition to deep energy savings and helping to address VCU’s deferred maintenance backlog, Aircuity will enhance the Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) for occupants of the labs. Through the Aircuity 2.0 web app, multiple constituents at the university will have access to continuously captured data and analytical tools that provide data on savings achieved, protection provided to occupants and additional opportunities for improvement

 

Since its launch in 2000, Aircuity has been the leader in demand control ventilation and indoor environmental quality solutions. The system is implemented in more than 200 laboratory and higher education facilities around the world, including Michigan State University, University of California, Irvine and Northwestern University. Aircuity 2.0, which was launched in May, further distinguishes Aircuity as the most robust, efficient, and verifiable airside solution available.
