As the number of individuals being vaccinated increase, and as we continue implementing CDC protocols to lessen the viral spread of the COVID-19 virus, there are still lingering concerns about the virus -especially as states lessen restrictions and businesses open back up for in-person schedules.
Employees especially believe businesses have a responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their office spaces. According to Facility Executive, 46 percent of office tenants say they would seek a new office building with new infrastructure and technology to help protect the health and safety of their staff.
This not only affects employers but also office building managers and property management companies. To avoid losing tenants, property management companies must prioritize air quality and other means to ensure individuals in those occupied spaces are protected.
Genesis Management Group (GMG), the owner of office buildings in the Boston suburbs, understands the weight of this responsibility. GMG addressed the issue head-on by installing ActivePure Technology in its existing HVAC systems.
ActivePure is a total air and surface disinfection solution. ActivePure effectively deactivates pathogens in the air and on surfaces, immediately and continuously 24-hours a day, seven days a week. With origins in NASA-funded research, ActivePure has been extensively tested in FDA-compliant third party laboratories and is trusted for use in occupied spaces. The ActivePure Medical Guardian has been cleared by the FDA as a Class II Medical Device.
ActivePure's efficacy is scientifically proven to neutralize in real-time viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus, dust and allergens, and even SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
"These are unprecedented times calling for unprecedented measures," said Paul C. Grant, president and CEO of Genesis. "That's why we are excited to be one of the first in Boston's commercial real estate industry to offer this game-changing technology in our existing infrastructure."
Grant considers ActivePure Technology a bonus of safety measures, adding another critical layer of sanitation and cleanliness to its occupied spaces. "We're literally scrubbing the air and surfaces with technology designed to keep our tenants safe, eliminate sick days and ensure all-around increased productivity," he said.
GMG and other property management companies around Boston hope to bring employees back into the office with peace of mind.
ActivePure's team works hard to provide expert solutions for indoor spaces with customizable options, ultimately allowing people to remain comfortable, healthy and safe at the office. The unique and patented technology is offered in products that range from standalone portable units to devices installed within heating and air conditioning units to handheld travel units.
ActivePure Technology is available in several solutions. ActivePure's team of experts works with each customer to customize solutions that meets their facility layout and personal infection prevention needs.
Products developed by ActivePure Technologies have helped protect over 50 million businesses and residences worldwide. Our technology has been honored by the Smithsonian, the Space Foundation as Certified Space Technology, and has been inducted into the Space Foundation Hall of Fame.
Like all responsible property management companies, GMG will continue to follow CDC and Massachusetts government regulations during the pandemic. However, GMG wanted to offer its tenants an extra level of security as employees return to the office.
"This is a tremendous asset, not only in the fight against COVID-19 but against common colds, the flu and other pathogens," said Grant. "As we look to welcome our tenants and their employees back to work, their safety, comfort and wellbeing are of utmost importance to use. This technology is an investment in their health and peace of mind."
