The Tower at PNC Plaza was designed to be the "greenest office tower in the world". With numerous energy efficiency measures included in the design, it was important that they all interacted properly to save energy.

Engineers knew that obtaining accurate humidity measurements was critical and also presented a challenge based on the complex interaction of operable windows, chilled beams, and the solar chimney, which draws air from the perimeter and along the floor of the building.

Installing Aircuity in the The Tower at PNC Plaza provided accurate DCV, enthalpy economizing and the most efficient and effective humidity sensing. Aircuity eliminated the need for separate humidity sensors, saving approximately $250,000 in first costs and even more in maintenance and replacement costs to keep the humidity sensors working year after year.

Harvard Study:

The Impact of Green Buildings on Cognitive Function 
 
A recently published study highlights the positive correlation between higher cognitive performance and an enhanced indoor environmental quality. Research was conducted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health's Center for Health and the Global Environment, in conjunction with the Syracuse University Center of Excellence and SUNY Upstate Medical University. The study examined the performance of people working in office buildings in relation to varying levels of VOCs, and fresh air rates. Results show cognitive scores were 101% higher in green building conditions with "enhanced ventilation". The study speaks volumes about the benefits of DCV within office buildings. When ventilation is optimized to enhance the indoor environmental quality of spaces, both employees benefit on the health front, and the company benefits from workers' increased cognitive abilities. Below are some quick highlights of the study.

24 workers were tested at the end of the day in three different environments:
•    Conventional: typical (~500 ppm) volatile organic compound (VOC) levels and 20 cfm outdoor air per person
•    Green: VOC levels reduced to approximately 50 ppm and 20 cfm outdoor air per person
•    Green with enhanced ventilation: VOC levels reduced to approximately 50 ppm and 40 cfm outdoor air per person

On average, cognitive scores were:
     •    61 percent higher in green building conditions
     •    101 percent higher in green building conditions with enhanced ventilation
