Located in a former school building converted by A00 Architecture, ON AIR's strategy was to equip each space with an independent fresh air unit combined with filtration. The mechanical design and final solution was provided by PureLiving. "The goal was to provide greater value than grade A offices, where tenants need to take the low air quality they are typically given," says Cathy Chen, director of the project. "Here, tenants have control on fresh air, which can be increased and filtered depending on their needs. If every person is able to get the equivalent of an extra 30 minutes of productivity per day because of the better air quality in the office, the payback is almost instant."
In order to qualify for RESET Certification, materials with very low to no chemical emissions were chosen and documented. Prioritizing transparency, the real-time IAQ results from On Air will be made publicly available via the RESET App.
"There will be a learning curve, and we'll be sharing the results," completes Cathy. "We can't control the outdoors, but we can control the indoors, not just PM2.5, but also carbon dioxide levels and chemical off-gassing."
ON AIR is part of a new generation of high performance offices that rethinks the quality of indoor environments and how it relates to people's health and productivity.

The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), an international association for practitioners and experts to provide indoor environmental solutions to consumers and public, launched on Wednesday, September 21st, its first China chapter. The chapter, based in Shanghai, appointed Louie Cheng as Chapter Director in addition to five other board member appointments.
“China is an important strategical market for IAQA’s global blue print to introduce international standards and sharing best practices across the world. We’re very happy to see China’s determination in solving domestic indoor environmental issues by participating in our international platform,” said Stephanie Sears, IAQA Global Executive Director.
Over 120 industry professionals and stakeholders joined the launch event, some joining the panel discussion to sharen their perspectives and expectations for the China IAQ industry and the IAQA Shanghai Chapter in particular.
“We’re delighted to see this established and look forward to forming further conversations with such an influential international organization,” said Wang Fang, Secretary-General of the Shanghai Indoor Contamination Control Industry Association. “We’ve been working actively to seek best practices to solve China’s IAQ problems. We hope that by leveraging IAQA’s tremendous experiences, together we will deliver comprehensive project solutions and research to China consumers.”
At this launch event, Louie Cheng also announced the chapter’s goals for 2016-2017:
Raise awareness & sophistication
Provide professional learning and resources
Create business opportunities
“IAQA is committed to preventing and solving indoor environmental problems. We embrace this spirit and aim to take the best solutions and practices to where it’s needed the most, China,” commented Louie Cheng, IAQA Shanghai Chapter Director. “The IAQA Shanghai Chapter is not only a bridge that connects China to international practices, but also establishes standards and unifies knowledge to bring China’s IAQ solutions to its best.”
To join the IAQA Shanghai Chapter, please email your name, company, and contact information to Johnnie Whang at firstname.lastname@example.org
Gensler, a leading global design firm, launched a 3-year research on plants and green wall impact of indoor air quality. During this session, Kyle Mertensmeyer, LEED Ap, Associate AIA of Gensler, introduced this research, which focuses on seeking ideas and methods for how architecture and engineering can actively improve the way we design buildings to address air quality both indoors and outdoors.
“This report is a joint effort from Gensler and our partners; thanks to PureLiving and Green Fortune for sharing their knowledge and experiences from the frontline,” said Mertensmeyer. “We believe that buildings themselves can become the filters, not just for the users, but also for the whole population. These ideas not only explore social responsibility but also emulate a key sustainability principle of giving back what we use better than how we found it.”
Four panelists from the design industry and end users shared their practices to echo this research. Johnnie Whang and Shawn Qiu represented the end users, who described the challenges they are facing. They highlighted that the communication strategy with occupants, often overlooked, is a key to success.
Over the past few years, the Chinese market for clean air has exploded. But you may have also seen a lot of unsophisticated clients, leading to confusion that is made worse by the emergence of solution providers lacking adequate knowledge or experience. China currently lacks standards around indoor air quality service and products. This has made it difficult for true professionals to be recognized for quality.
Internationally, the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) is the organization that regulates quality, encourages best practice sharing, and rewards professional members by creating a platform for market education. As an industry body, it also shapes policy and creates market opportunities for members.
Since PureLiving joined the IAQA in 2010, we have seen these benefits and want to introduce them to China. This year, with the endorsement of the IAQA global board, we are starting China’s first IAQA chapter.
The kickoff meeting was taken place on June 30, Shanghai. We're mostly delighted to have the technical experts, sustainability professionals and thought leaders who care about the future of our industry gather together as the core founding memebers. Moderated by Louie Cheng, the President and founder of PureLiving, the core founding memebers learnt about the IAQA, discussed the chapter's future agenda and explored the possibilities of collaboration.
The follow up works are rolling out in the coming months, this is going to start a new era where the IAQ standard and regulations in China are going to catch up on the international level, which opens the doors for more competitive and qualified suppliers to provide more creative solutions and to compete on a better regulated market. When the market gets smarter, the ones benefit the most are the Chinese consumers.
