“ Haiku fans move a lot of air for a low amount of power. They were recommended for the building because they improve comfort and help meet the strict efficiency guides set for tenants. The Haiku fans are great at controlling the thermal environment without having a traditional full cooling system in place. Justin Stenkamp, associate, PAE Consulting Engineers
