New York’s building managers are being drilled on the latest in clean air technology.
NYARM, the New York Association of Realty Managers recently began a collaboration with the Richard Ferdinand, managing director of Telemedicine Clean Air Habitats LLC (TCAH).
TCHA provides easily installed “air scrubbing” systems that are simple, clean safe and can remove airborne pathogens (such as viruses, bacterias, fungus and mold spores), common allergens, pollen and a multitude of other pollutants.
Ferdinand, while presenting at a recent NYARM seminar, introduced the concept that harnessing various attributes of ultra violet, and then strategically placing a system in the workplace, can have a noticeable positive effect on workplace production.
Margie Russell, NYARM’s executive director, said “What is especially intriguing about the building-wellness approach to managing buildings, are the measurable gains in employee performance and attendance when the workplace environment’s wellness-factor is optimized, can be translated into real bottom line dollars”.
Additionally, when using this ultra violet light system Russell said building management may find significant, immediate and enduring cost savings in the heating and cooling categories
Tax write offs are also available under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and the sytem can contribute points towards LEED certification
“Building wellness will now be incorporated, whenever possible, into NYARM’s building management professional development programs,” said Russell.
