Ventilation Information

Keeping Attendees & Staff Safe

Following are some details about the current capabilities of the HVAC systems at the RICC. The existing air handlers that serve the meeting spaces have integral outside air economizers which are controlled by C02 sensors. They can provide demand ventilation as occupancy increases with the meeting spaces they serve. The RICC also has the capability to set up schedules to purge the spaces in a pre- and post- occupancy flush routine, in line with ASHRAE recommendations.
