What if our systems do not meet the required outside air when systems are tested at worst-case conditions?

If the systems do not meet the required outside air during the initial testing the following actions should be taken: If the system (damper) set points for the worst case condition can be modified to supply sufficient outside air to meet the ASHRAE 62.1-2010 requirements, the team must do so. If the system is incapable of providing enough outside air to meet the ASHRAE 62.1-2010 requirements, the project can then pursue Case 2 and provide at least 10 cfm/person for those systems. Note that the team needs to supply evidence that the systems aren’t capable of meeting the ASHRAE 62.1-2010 requirements.
