Preventing Ventilation System Design Issues

It is a common occurrence that during the design and construction phase of a project for the ventilation system to be easily overlooked, which can lead to issues further down the line. Too frequently, architects and designers incorrectly interpret the HTMs and HBNs resulting in errors in the construction design and in the installation of critical ventilation systems. This can be problematic when installed in sensitive areas with strict demands on performance such as operating theatres and ultra-clean rooms in hospitals.

Once a ventilation system has been built, it becomes difficult and expensive to alter the layout of the installed system to make it compliant with the requirements.

HVAC Design Review

IOM review HVAC designs while they are still at the planning stage and assist in making alterations to layout and ensure that the proposed system meets the ventilation requirements, before the build or refurbishment takes place.

This relatively simple process has the potential to save an enormous amount of time, trouble and expense as a project progresses. Eliminating the problem of having to get the system altered early on by making sure that the once the proposed ventilation system has been put in place that it will meet the required demand placed on it.
