Multifamily Ventilation Strategies and Compartmentalization Requirements

This Building America webinar, held on Sept. 24, 2014, focused on key challenges in multifamily ventilation and strategies to address these challenges. 

  • Sean Maxwell, Consortium for Advanced Residential Buildings, discussed make-up air strategies in new construction multifamily buildings. The presentation will discuss the evaluation of the performance of this strategy in three buildings and design guidance to improve the performance of this strategy. View the presentation.
     
  • Joe Lstiburek, Building Science Corporation, discussed the impossibility of meeting ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2013 ventilation requirements in multifamily buildings that are also constructed to LEED compartmentalization requirements of the currently proposed ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2014 (out for public review) compartmentalization requirements unless balanced ventilation approaches are used.
