Encompass Blue for Schools & Universities

Schools and universities are like office buildings, but with the added sensitivity and consideration needed for the development of children and young adults. An integral aspect of ventilation within schools and universities is to control CO2 levels in several buildings and infrastructure across the entire campus. Good indoor air quality and ventilation help promote better productivity levels for all students and staff, boosting academic excellence. Not only does this contribute to better health & wellness for students and staff, but it can also improve the overall output of the school or university. Additionally, with COVID-19 protocols and fear of various other spreadable viruses and bacteria, the HVAC systems in schools and universities need to ensure utmost safety for students to be back on campus.


Blue IoT’s Encompass Blue delivers IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) monitoring and airflow & filter management amongst others to ensure a safe environment for students & staff, allowing for a safe and pleasant experience in schools and universities.
