“What has impressed me most is the fast turnaround at very short notice...[and] quality of reports, that are both detailed and easy to understand.”

Award: WELL Silver
GTB receiving WELL plaque
When GTB decided they wanted to achieve Asia-Pacific’s first-ever WELL v1 certification for their Shanghai office, we designed an automated PM2.5 and VOC filtration and monitoring solution using our Pure-Qi ™ in-ceiling air filtration technology to meet WELL's rigorous standards for air filtration and noise. We also conducted a pre-verification assessment to identify factors which might prevent gaining certification, thus increasing likelihood of successful certification.
当GTB决定为其上海办公室争取获得亚太地区首个WELL v1认证的时候，境纯为其设计了自动化的PM2.5和VOC的过滤系统和监控解决方案，运用境纯的Pure-Qi ™-吊顶式空气净化器，以满足WELL对空气过滤及噪音的严格标准。我们亦为其进行了认证前性能评估，以识别可能妨碍认证的因素，从而增加成功认证的可能性。
GTB’s Shanghai office, a project designed and built by M Moser, is also a winner of the AIA Hong Kong Merit Award for Interior Architecture in 2016 and is one of the first five spaces to achieve WELL v1 certification worldwide.
GTB上海办公室是由 M Moser 设计及建造的项目，同时获得了2016年内部建筑AIA香港优异奖，也是全球首批实现WELL v1 认证的五个空间之一。

PureLiving is delighted to have been awarded a Certificate of Merit from IFMA (International Facilities Management Association) at the Asia Pacific Facility Management Awards 2018 for our innovative air control technology, ECS (EcoControl System).
Awarded at the IFMA Hong Kong Chapter Annual Dinner this month, PureLiving was awarded the accolade for the Best Facility Management Technology category, in recognition of our advanced EcoControl System (ECS).
PureLiving’s ECS is a building management system that provides a single point of control for fresh air and filtration. The system works with sophisticated monitors to respond in real-time to air pollution levels and adjust the filtration system depending on the air quality This reduces operating costs and energy charges by only using the system when it is needed, while still maintaining healthy air quality.
ECS uses convenient, web-based access and controls to help extend filter life, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. We continue to improve the features available, with market-leading predictive HVAC maintenance and building health heat map functionality coming later this year.
The award winners were determined by a judging panel that included past Presidents of the IFMA Hong Kong Chapter, the Board of Directors from IFMA Hong Kong, the Head of FM from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, plus representatives from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
