Public buildings

Public buildings

Public buildings include administrative institutions, post offices, community centres, maneges, theatres, cinemas, exhibition halls and other highly crowded spaces. The number of people in such buildings  keeps changing throughout the day, so the ventilation system should be able to support different operating modes. This task is solved through the use of a system that takes into account the readings of temperature, motion and air quality sensors.

Requirements for the ventilation of public buildings

Ventilation requirements for this type of buildings significantly depend on their purpose, floor area, number of floors and spaces. Shopping centers and concert halls typically have high ceilings, which complicates the supply of air to the lower part of the spaces and requires a special air distribution system. At the same time, educational and administrative institutions tend to include a large number of small rooms, each of which may require individual climate control.


Unlike residential premises where people may stay around the clock, public buildings are used unevenly. At night, most of such premises are not used in the normal mode, but there are periods of peak attendance during the day. The number of people visiting public buildings depends on the time of the day, day of the week and even the season: for example, schools are empty in summer, but from autumn to spring there are large numbers of students there, especially in the morning. That is why it is important to provide for proper operating conditions ensuring the adjustment of ventilation throughout the day.

Solutions for public buildings

End-to-end technical solutions based on high-quality ventilation equipment have been developed to provide for the ventilation of public buildings.

The automatic controls built into ventilation units make it possible to adjust the system’s operation process in accordance with the operating modes of the building and its functional parts. The system controls the zone dampers, thus ensuring climate control on demand. The quantity and temperature of supplied air are determined automatically based on the data transmitted by the sensors that can detect human presence and CO2 volume, which allows the system to independently adjust its operation. The use of Swegon’s GOLD line units provided with a heat exchanger requires a minimum amount of electricity at negative outdoor air temperatures.

This approach to public building ventilation systems helps come up with reliable energy-efficient technical solutions that take into account all the features of the premises and human needs.

Advantages of our systems for public buildings

Demand-controlled ventilation

A gym, classroom or dean's office differ by their floor area and spatial crowding. The system will supply them with intake air depending on the room volume and oxygen consumption level.

Economic efficiency

When there are no people in the room, the ventilation system stops supplying air or lowers its consumption to the required level, thus reducing the energy consumption and extending the equipment service life.


Many schools, kindergartens, hospitals and theatres were built several decades ago. The buildings themselves remain reliable and sought after, but the requirements for ventilation and air conditioning have changed significantly. The solutions offered for public buildings allow to re-equip the room in accordance with the new trends and taking into account the new layout.


Heating is the most expensive utility but with the help of ventilation the coolant costs can be cut down. Automatic controls analyze the air temperature and can adjust the amount of heat in the room.


An increase in the level of carbon dioxide in the room leads to decreased alertness, high fatigue and increased morbidity. An efficient ventilation system can considerably reduce the risk of negative environmental impact on personnel’s health.

We offer high-quality ventilation units, as well as develop and implement energy-efficient technical solutions
