The office of Cook Medical in Hong Kong, designed and built by M Moser Associates, has achieved the RESET Air Certification for Commercial Interior (v1.0).
RESET Air is the world’s first sensor-based, performance-driven building certification program where indoor air quality (IAQ) is monitored and measured in real-time.
Cook Medical is a family-owned company that delivers high-quality medical devices to some of the top medical research facilities, medical institutions and leading specialists in many countries around the world. Reflecting the company's strong emphasis on improving the health of patients and its people, M Moser created a workplace that takes fundamental care of their mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Enabling people to breathe fresh and clean air is a significant stepping stone to a healthy work environment, as demonstrated by the RESET certification of this Hong Kong office.
To achieve RESET Air Commercial Interior certification, M Moser worked closely with Cook Medical Hong Kong to consistently ensure that their IAQ met the following criteria, measured as a daily working hour average across 3 months:
• Particulate Matter (PM2.5) ≤35 μg/m3
• Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) < 500ug/m3
• Carbon Dioxide (CO2) < 1000ppm
The project began its Data Audit period on 1st August 2018 and has continuously met the RESET Air requirements ever since. In order to maintain its RESET accreditation and deliver best-in-class performance, the office will continue to monitor its air quality throughout the year while sharing the data with its staff and occupants on a daily basis. Over the past year, the indoor air quality at the office of Cook Medical Hong Kong has consistently met the RESET Air requirement.
