We’re grateful to continue to partner with notable companies both domestically and internationally across the sports, gaming, hotels, army, commercial and residential arenas. Below are a few project spotlights from the past year.
DOHA METRO (Doha, Qatar):
The Doha Metro is a rapid transit system currently under construction in Doha, Qatar’s capital city. The anticipated completion date is by the end of 2020, consisting of four active lines with an approximate overall length of 300 km and 100 stations in 2 phases.
Qatar Rail, the client in charge of the development of the first 3 lines (Red, Gold and Green) and 37 stations (Phase I) that make up the current Doha Metro system, saw the need to add powerful and effective indoor air cleaning technology to the larger, more crowded stations, such as those where several lines intersect, and also go deeper underground to accommodate the different levels. The largest station, which sits at the intersection of all 3 lines is the “iconic” Msheireb Station.
AtmosAir was selected by Qatar Rail as the air purification system of choice. AtmosAir is being installed in all 36 Air Handlers that serve the 5 levels of Mshreieb Station. The Msheireb station, and the rest of the 3 lines, are expected to open to the public in 2020.
Golden 1 Center:
AtmosAir was excited to announce our partnership with the LEED Platinum Golden 1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings! Located in downtown Sacramento, the publicly owned arena is part of a business and entertainment district called Downtown Commons (DoCo), which includes a $250 million, 16-story mixed-use tower.
In addition to the Kings’ home games, the arena hosts concerts, conventions and other sporting and entertainment events. Suite partners have access to three exclusive clubs on the premium level including two skyboxes that overlook the concourse with a direct view of the outside. Total capacity is expandable to about 19,000 to accommodate concert audiences.
Sustainability is of great importance to the Golden 1 Center and the AtmosAir team is ecstatic to be a part of their efforts to “green up” sports. By installing our system, the Golden 1 Center will also use AtmosAir to enhance HVAC energy efficiency and will give the arena the ability to shave peak load energy demand.
University of Colorado, Colorado Springs Entertainment Center for the Arts:
University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) Entertainment Center for the Arts is an 8,500-square meter arts center that boasts five venues, rehearsal studios, classrooms, practice rooms, balconies and gardens. The unique building intentionally looks different from existing architecture on the UCCS campus.
Despite being located over 1 mile above sea level in the beautiful, mountainous Colorado Springs, the designers still wanted to consider the indoor air quality issues that can arise, even in these pristine outdoor conditions. UCCS management took into consideration the success of AtmosAir with providing reduced odor, allergen and bacteria environments for performers in similar locations such as the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and multiple training facilities for college and professional athletes throughout the US. AtmosAir was installed throughout the building to make the space immediately able to be occupied following their renovation by removing VOCs and odors.
