According to ForHealth.org, there are 9 foundations of a healthy building.  In dealing with COVID-19 and keeping your facility healthy for all occupants, consider what you need to do with regard to:

Air quality                   Thermal health             Moisture               Dust & Allergens

Safety & Security        Water Quality               Noise                    Lighting & Views

Ventilation

 

In assessing the challenges facing your building occupants and the physical health of your facility, determine where internal resources can manage the tasks.  When external help is required, Rudolph Libbe Group’s FM360 facility management team can assist with your property’s operational and maintenance needs.  This is particularly important if your facility has been overused or unoccupied during COVID-19 shutdown directives.

HEALTHY building help from FM360

Clean air circulating within commercial buildings is critical to occupant health.  Our FM360 team can help in multiple ways.  Let us show you how we can improve the health of your air handling systems.

  • Air purification using advanced ionization technology

When ions are injected into the air stream, they break down pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor. When the ions come in contact with viruses, bacteria or mold, they remove the hydrogen molecules from the pathogens. Without hydrogen, the pathogens have no source of energy and will die. The ions also attach to allergens, such as pollen, smoke and other particles, causing them to band together until they are large enough to be caught by filters.

  • UV light systems for air purification

Using UV light is another option for air purification and particularly useful for medical and healthcare facilities.  These systems are specifically designed to remove hazardous airborne microbial contaminants.

We have other solutions to help your facility and its occupants stay healthy and safe.

Portable wash stations

RLG is fabricating portable, self-contained hygiene stations that provide easy access for employee and visitor hand washing in your facility. These simple-to-place units measure 40” wide x 45” high. Total capacity for top (clean water) and bottom (dirty water) is 150 gallons.  As it is for hand washing, the dirty water can be emptied into a nearby drain. Soap and paper towel dispensers are included on corners of each lower unit. Lead time from order placement to delivery is one week.

Building layout changes and technology additions to facilitate social distancing 

What equipment or offices should be moved or changed to maintain six-foot distance between employees? Your FM360 team can plan and manage moves as well as provide temporary or permanent rewiring and teledata services.  Moving cubicles, doorways, equipment or work benches are part of the FM360 service offering.
