AtmosAir New Project Spotlights: Doha Metro & Presence Saints Mary’s Hospital:

ATMOSAIR NEW PROJECT SPOTLIGHTS: DOHA METRO & ST. MARY’S HOSPITAL:

Since our last newsletter, the AtmosAir team is very excited to announce two new project spotlights, the Doha Metro and St. Mary’s Hospital! While both are two very unique acquisitions, they demonstrate the importance of breathing clean air on a domestic and international scale.

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.

PRESENCE SAINTS MARY & ELIZABETH MEDICAL CENTER (Chicago, IL):

Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center (PSMEMC) is an award-winning medical center on Chicago’s near northwest side. For more than a century, PSMEMC has delivered outstanding, compassionate medical care — providing patients and their families with patient and family-centered care from the moment they walk through their doors.

AtmosAir will be installed in various new air handling units serving ORs and ICUs. In hospitals, especially where the germ and disease count is significantly higher than typical buildings and residences, AtmosAir Bi-Polar Ionization technology helps to reduce bacteria, influenza, and viruses. Because bipolar ions impact the DNA of different bacteria and viruses, the hospital further helps to protect its inhabitants from illness and disease.

In 2018, hospitals are being fined for healthcare acquired infections and readmissions. AtmosAir is a proactive technology that will mitigate fines while working to keep occupants safe and healthy.

AtmosAir Featured at DUBAI IEQ Forum 2018

This past May 3rd, 2018, team members from AtmosAir, appeared and spoke at the 5th Annual Edition of the World IEQ forum at the University of Dubai. This exhibition provides a platform for discussing challenges, exchanging knowledge, and presenting innovations relevant to the IEQ. The IEQ is a multi-discipline subject where engineers, scientists, physicians as well as regulators play important roles and contribute to shape the development of indoor air quality issues.

Appearing among some of the most prominent energy-efficient companies and suppliers, team members from AtmosAir showcased the company’s newest clients in the UAE as well as recent advancements to our technologies and how AtmosAir continues to foster better IEQ in the Kingdom.

Vice-President of Sales & Marketing, Carlos Gendron, also touched upon the reoccurring theme that the forum centered on, ‘How do we balance the need for greater energy-efficiency with the demand for better indoor air quality?’ Gendron noted, “I had been looking for an opportunity for 2-3 years to speak in front of such a targeted audience of IEQ/IAQ/Sustainability focused decision-makers. I had a great connection with the audience, got lots of very good questions, and had a really good chance to make an impression of the role that AtmosAir could play in that market. A lot of people came up afterwards to discuss following up and engaging in various pilot projects to test and validate the concepts I presented (saving energy by reducing Outside Air), as well as the benefits our BPI technology can deliver.”

It was a honor to exhibit and speak during the Forum as the UAE is definitely on the right track to adopting technology that gives back to cleaner nature. Director of Health and Safety Development, Dubai Municipality, Redha H. Salmon notes, “The IEQ forum is the right answer for the fast evolvement and continued development of the technical areas within the IEQ which require such platforms.”

AtmosAir Gives Back to Green Building Legacy Project

This past winter, the AtmosAir team was honored to collaborate and teach students at Madison Park Technical Vocational High School the benefits and services of green-building technologies.

Specifically touching upon the benefits of AtmosAir’s Bi-Polar Ionization system, the team was also able to conduct a tour for the students of Boston’s TD Garden, to showcase the mechanical systems and where AtmosAir is installed within the arena’s facilities. This program takes place once-a-week at Boston Public Schools’ only vocational high school.

As seen in this two-minute video about the program, Executive Director, Kevin McCaskill, notes, “It’s important that our students really get on board with this new phenomenon about green technology and environmental causes. If our students are learning from industry-standard individuals, be it the leaders of the industry, or the workers themselves within the green technology field, it just enhances what our students can do, learn and perform within the industry and providing great opportunity for them.”

The vast majority of students within the program are in the Facilities Management Career Track, thus it makes sense to place a high priority focus on Green Building and the importance of clean indoor air quality.

AtmosAir CEO, Steve Levine, believes that “training and educating the next workforce on the latest green technologies is of major importance and priority, especially right now.” He adds, “We love teaching young students about our technologies and why we try to make an impact in the environment that they live and breathe in.”
