JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead: Repaired exhaust leaks to eliminate musty odors throughout the building

A consultant brought in to evaluate the situation found that exhaust levels differed substantially from floor to floor. Top floors received the full 40 CFM of exhaust they were designed to pull, while bottom floors received only 5 CFM or less. The consultant’s recommended solution: start by cleaning and sealing each of the ten 23 - story ventilation shafts running down the length of the building.
