Remote Monitoring & Commissioning of Airborne Infection Isolation Rooms

Only 48 hours ago I had never heard of an airborne infection isolation room (AIIR). Now we are working to help mechanical engineers and BAS contractors rapidly recommission hospital rooms (and even existing non-medical and temporary facilities) into temporary AIIRs.

Just yesterday I was asked by an facilities commissioning firm operating in the US Northeast, if we could help them recommission isolation rooms more quickly.  Less than 24 hours later, here’s our first version (with simulated BAS data).

Here’s what we did

We created worksites for both the engineering firm and one of their local BAS systems integrators, allowing all parties, eventually including hospital facilities teams, to remotely work together.  Each group was invited to the platform by automated email, and given ability to invite others to participate within their own workspaces.

We provided the BAS integrator partner with our API to allow them to securely integrate (onsite) BAS data into shareable “digital twins” of facilities assets, within the BuiltSpace platform.

We created a new space/asset type for “isolation rooms”. We created a sharable “building” and added sample spaces, equipment and isolation rooms.

We reviewed ASHRAE recommendations  and drafted proposed monitoring procedures.  These will be tweaked by the engineers, to meet their specific needs.

We built version one of the procedure, using simulated BAS data with outside temperature and humidity data from a weather site…as 48F and 94% humidity is likely out of spec for a working isolation room.

We published V1 to the partner sites for review, all within 24 hours.

Let’s work together

Today, more than ever, we all need to work together to get through this pandemic and economic turmoil.   Let’s talk.
