Twenty-five buildings recognised for fulfilling award criteria

The National Air Filtration Association (NAFA), the trade association for heating, ventilating and air conditioning air filter manufacturers and distributors around the world, has announced the names of recipients of its 2012 Clean Air Award.

The following is the list of recipients for the 2012 Award include:

  • MetroNational (Cobalt Center), Houston, Texas
  • Oxford Properties, Quinness Tower, Vancouver, BC, Canada
  • Galleria Plaza I (Transwestern), Houston, Texas
  • Banner Ironwood Medical Center, San Tan Valley, Arizona
  • University Medical Center, Tucson, Arizona
  • The Hospital of Central Connecticut, New Britain Campus, New Britain, Connecticut
  • Shaw Cable, Edmonton, AB, Canada

According to NAFA(r), recipients of the NAFA Clean Air Award receive a trophy that can be displayed in their facility and maintain the award through yearly inspections for renewal to confirm system performance to NAFA Clean Air Award specifications.

Explaining the eligibility and the awarding process, NAFA said that building owners and facility managers must increase the level of indoor air cleanliness with filtration and improve system hygiene in 10 categories, achieving a combined score for improvements of 52 points or more and have the work inspected and confirmed by a NAFA-certified Air Filter Specialist. Signed documentation of all retrofit and upgrade work must accompany all applications, and confirmation with the on-site inspection is required. Businesses from across the world are eligible to submit their entries for the award, and are nominated by NAFA member companies and a number of other HVAC organisations.

The award has been instituted to encourage and recognise building owners and facility managers to work to increase the indoor environment air cleanliness through higher levels of air filtration, said NAFA, and added that since its inception in 1998, it has awarded about 240 facilities across the world.
