PureLiving, as the special sponsor of this conference, brought turn-key indoor environment solutions for campus space in the form of workshop, the largest booth at the exhibition site, to create a safe, healthy and automated future learning environment for teachers and students in the post-COVID era. PureLiving, along with two other industry leaders, Steelcase and Polyvision, presented an experiential classroom setting and showed participants the important role of indoor air quality, furniture, and bacterica-sterilization whiteboards in the post-COVID era. In addition, the use of technology (continuous monitoring and automation) shows the connection between good design, smart classrooms and student performance.

After the COVID, every school is faced with the safety and health problem of teachers and students after the restart, which is also a problem that troubles every school operator and principal. International schools, in particular, face great pressure from overseas students returning to school for the autumn semester. At the seminar, Ms. Zhang Linfei, Director of Business Development of PureLiving, showed us what Are the Best Ways to Create Safe and Healthy School Environment and the concept of a classroom with a healthy indoor environment in the future on the topic of "Back to School After COVID".

ONE STEP FURTHER TO FUTURE: PureLiving 2019 Technology Forum PureLiving , 09/04/2019

On March 19th,PureLiving together with Hines held the ONE STEP FURTHER TO FUTURE technology forum at One Museum Place. More than 80 clients and partners gathered together at the forum to learn more about new clean air technologies and network.

In the past nine years, PureLiving was growing rapidly and has become the leading company for indoor environments not only in China but also the wider Asian market and beyond. Provided solutions and services for over 35% of Fortune 100 companies and completed over 7000 projects. As the industry thought leader, we are the first total solution provider for indoor air quality, and continues to develop more effective ways to healthier environment.

During the forum, Louie Cheng, President of PureLiving, gave a welcome speech and noted some of PureLiving’s recent achievements on helping clients improving their indoor environmental quality and introduced new solutions: “Managed Air” and SmartHVAC systems.

Managed air
“Managed air” is a simple ‘pay-for-performance’ model that addresses your indoor air quality, helping you to achieve your goals with continuous high performance with no hidden cost. We have onsite Air Quality experts joining the project team to deliver projects without IAQ problems, significantly lowers risk of operating problems & costs.

SmartHVAC
The SmartHVAC enhancement enables enhanced sustainable performance by combining media filter and electronic filter while not sacrificing ventilation rates. It is highly cost-effective as it has lower energy consumption due to lower pressure drops, and lower consumption of consumable filters. The service also provides real-time post-filtration air quality data, giving you a direct view of the difference between indoor and outdoor air quality.

Derek Hrzek, Senior Associate from Hines also gave a speech to thank Louie and the entire team at PureLiving for all their substantial contributions to One Museum Place.

Rethinking Learning Spaces” – Design Future Classroom 设计构建未来教室 PureLiving , 23/04/2019

Designers have long focused on creating schools that are attractive and functional.  However, more and more educators are realizing that the physical environment has a strong impact on the ability of students to learn and educators to teach.  During this two-day BEED 2019 FOCUS conference, PureLiving partnered with three other leading companies and expert created an experiential Future Classroom demonstrated to visitors the role of indoor air quality, good lighting, acoustics, carpet system, and furniture. In addition, the use of technology (continuous monitoring and automation), shows the connection between good design, smart classrooms and student performance.

Good design requires the integration of different disciplines to create an educational space.  Each discipline can impact the other.  For instance, the use of carpeting systems can help to reduce ambient noise that lets students learn better because they can hear better.  In our experiential classroom, four leading companies, each expert in their field, come together to create and share integrated holistic designs for comfort and health: Steelcase (furniture), Interface (carpeting), Studio Illumine (lighting), and PureLiving (air and sound quality).

During the workshop, PureLiving’s president Louie Cheng shared five ways your school can use indoor air quality to improve learning performance.

Poor IAQ has a real impact on schools. According to study results, the absenteeism rate is 35% higher and students in classrooms with poor ventilation rate score on average 6% lower in standardized exams. Schools are under pressure to provide a healthy environment from parents and society. In addition, doing air quality right can be beneficial to learning and business operating, such as improving the comfort level of students and teachers, admissions, recruiting rate, retention rate, absenteeism. Good indoor air quality can also provide a lasting halo effect on school brand.
