Enhancing Air Quality for an

International Private School in Hong Kong

As a leading provider of innovative indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions, BSG was presented with an opportunity to collaborate with a renowned private coeducational day school in Hong Kong near Repulse Bay. The school sought to address the challenge of unpleasant odours and subpar IAQ within their classrooms, aiming to provide a healthier living and learning environment for their multicultural staff and students. This case study highlights how BSG proposed and implemented an effective solution to meet HKIS’s requirements.

Addressing the Problem

During our initial discussions with the facility managers, we identified their primary concern of unpleasant odours in the classrooms and the need to improve IAQ by reducing total volatile organic compounds (TVOC), airborne bacteria, and formaldehyde. The school wanted to ensure a pleasant environment that would enhance the well-being, comfort, and productivity of their staff and students.

Finding the Solution

After careful analysis of the requirements and assessment of the classroom spaces, BSG proposed the application of our cutting-edge Photoplasma technology, specifically our INDUCT (ID) Series, to address the facilities IAQ concerns. The ID Series was chosen due to its remarkable capability to destroy odours, bacteria, viruses, mould, fumes, and other airborne impurities effectively. Additionally, the ID Series boasted advantages such as quiet operation, cost-effectiveness, and the elimination of consumable chemicals, filters, or scents. BSG’s team of IAQ experts worked closely with the school to determine the most suitable locations for installing the INDUCT units within the HVAC system of the Repulse Bay school, covering both the upper and lower primary classrooms. Our team ensured the proper integration of the units, enabling the efficient distribution of clean air throughout the classrooms.

INDUCT

The INDUCT series, designed for HVAC systems and Exhaust Emission systems, offers versatile solutions for various environments and spaces. It can be utilized as a standalone unit or combined with other INDUCTs to create customized solutions. With the flexibility to be installed in any building or unit equipped with an HVAC system, the INDUCT series provides a comprehensive and efficient approach to enhancing indoor air quality.
