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.
