After the Lockdown

With the easing of some of the governments lockdown restrictions there is an increasing number of companies and people reoccupying buildings

To ensure that the infection doesn’t rise again as the population returns to a semblance of normality; the government and organisations such as CIBSE, ASHRAE and REHVA are issuing guidance aimed at minimising the risk of people falling ill with Covid-19 in reoccupied buildings.
The current guidance from Public Health England (PHE) states that Covid-19 is assumed to be primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing, which come into contact with others directly or via contaminated surfaces. The government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, however, has acknowledged that airborne transmission is a route, particularly in poorly ventilated spaces

As such there are some measures / precautions that building operators need to make before re occupancy takes place. These are summarized below: Understand your ventilation systems.

  • Run ventilation systems at higher volume flowrate and for longer periods
  • Avoid recirculation/transfer of air from one room to another unless this is the only way of providing adequately high ventilation to all occupied rooms
  • Recirculation of air within a single room where this is complemented by an outdoor air supply is acceptable
  •  If applicable, thermal wheels should be switched off, but the pressure difference between supply and extract will need to be maintained to minimise any leakage flow from the extract to supply side

The key to achieving the above is for there to be a clear and technically based assessment of how the buildings systems are configured and what can be achieved by them.  We at Norwood Consultants can provide you with a technical assessment of how your systems are configured and what can be done to comply with the requirements for occupation of all your buildings both large and small.
