Collegiate Sports Case Study

University of California

Originating in 1881 as the southern branch of the California State Normal School, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is a distinguished public research university located in Los Angeles, California.


UCLA installed AtmosAir at John Wooden Center. The goal was to improve indoor air quality by reducing particles, odors, and VOCs.


The area chosen for the study was the Yates Gym at UCLA. 

The gym is the home of the women’s gymnastics team and is used primarily for gymnastics activities. 

There is a great amount of dust of dust and particulate from the rosin and chalk typically used in gymnastics. There is also a lot of odors and off gassing from the training being performed, the flooring, and the gymnastics equipment. 

IAQ testing was performed on April 1st and April 2nd 2014. 


Third party testing conducted at UCLA showed greater than 75% reductions in particles and greater than 75% in VOCs. AtmosAir has since been adopted by UCLA and installed in many buildings on campus. UCLA uses AtmosSmart intelligent BPI systems to measure and control IAQ. The IAQ data from AtmosSmart is reported into their BMS as a standard. 

  • PM 10 Particles (-72% )
  • PM 2.5 Particles (-75%)
  • TVOC (-77%)
