Real-Time Indoor Air Quality Assessment using Singapore IAQ Technology and the SS554:2016 Standard

We use the latest IOT-IAQ sensor

AURA Sensor

To know the air you breathe, you need to constantly monitor it 24/7 without fail. Changes in indoor air occur differently based on occupancy, weather conditions, time of day and even on weekends when the air conditioner is off. These factors affect the decisions made by the building management for the recommendation and implementation of various solutions like increasing fresh air supply, automated temperature controllers, air purifiers and sanitizers, or other devices that will help improve the indoor air quality of the space. 

*The Workplace Safety and Health Council of Singapore has released “Guidelines on the management of IAQ on Buildings“.     

Unlike other IAQ testing processes which depend on a single scheduled (spot-on) test to capture data, our “Real-time Indoor Air Quality Assessment” method relies on hourly, daily and monthly data sets to ensure the veracity and timely reporting of information to our customers using our proprietary data analytics methodology and a dashboard that is available on the cloud via a mobile app or PC. 

Each month LumenAire Philippines will tabulate the data that are gathered from the sensors installed in various locations to give the decision-maker an actual account of their Indoor Air Quality that will result in an executable action plan to address unhealthy air issues in the office or any commercial establishment. 

*LumenAire Philippines ensure that your establishment is fully compliant with “Singapore SS554 Standard” for Healthy Indoor Air.

What is LEED?

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is one of the world’s most extensively utilized and recognized green building rating systems. It provides a comprehensive set of standards that can be used from new construction through sustainable operations and maintenance. Since its introduction in 1993 by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), the number of LEED-certified projects has continuously increased, with almost 140,000 certified buildings in different countries. 

It is recognized as an indicator of sustainable expertise and excellence internationally. It guides investors, company owners, and facility managers on how to optimize a building’s efficiency, reduce operating expenses, enhance the building’s value, and ensure the comfort, health, and safety of tenants. 

Pathway to LEED Certification

Green buildings offer many benefits, including the ability to create a sustainable workplace. Green buildings help the environment by saving water, energy, and natural resources, and they also benefit business owners by enhancing productivity and reducing absenteeism due to improved health. These significant advantages are the reasons why LEED was developed, which has since driven a worldwide trend towards healthy and well-designed buildings for occupants.

What are the measurable benefits of getting a LEED certification?

LEED certification benefits you as a business owner, your occupants, and the environment. Some of the key advantages include:

  • Increase in Property Valuation – Green buildings and amenities command a rent premium, with lease-up rates averaging 20% more than non-green structures.
  • Maintain High Performance – Incorporates environmentally sustainable design, development, management, and efficiency into a green building.
  • Occupant Satisfaction – Occupants report better productivity and well-being in buildings with improved air quality and other health and wellness features.

Under LEED v4.1, there are three key areas where ARID & uHoo can be your valuable partner in earning the prescribed points: 

  • Enhanced Indoor Air Quality Strategies
  • Indoor Air Quality Assessment
  • Indoor Environmental Quality Performance (includes thermal comfort, lighting and acoustic performance)

For the three key categories, LEED awards points for indoor environmental quality strategies such as increased ventilation, monitoring of parameters such as temperature, relative humidity, light, and sound;  and source control and monitoring for gases and pollutants such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
