165 - COVID-19 Facility Changes and Going back to School with Raj Setty
It’s time for back-to-school so this week I am talking with Mr. Raj Setty, Principal at SETTY a firm offering high quality Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, Commissioning and Energy Services. We talk about what schools can do to increase the safety of students, but the common sense that we touch on goes beyond schools and can be applied to just about any building type. I think that you’ll like his approach and recommendations.And as much a we talk about things changing constantly, and that’s hard to believe sometimes, but as Raj mentioned in the interview we did get an update from ASHRAE HQ that the guidelines were updated, so be sure to check out the show notes.Also, Please consider sharing this episode or another one of your favorites.
