ATMOSAIR PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: WEWORK

Founded in 2010 with its main headquarters in New York City, WeWork provides shared workspaces for technology startup subculture communities, and services for entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, small businesses and large enterprises.

            When our AtmosAir team is approached by new companies, building managers or engineers, oftentimes it is to learn of the efficacy of the AtmosAir systems.  As WeWork founders initially started their co-working real estate company, as “Green Desk,” with specific design efforts and office orientation geared toward eco-conscious sustainability, it only seemed natural that our similar company missions aligned.  Given that WeWork also has many tenants and sources for potential indoor air quality issues, AtmosAir helps to keep WeWork spaces healthy! 

Atmos’ Bipolar ions impact the DNA of bacteria and viruses, and WeWork was hoping to help protect their space’s inhabitants from illness.

            AtmosAir was installed on the 6th floor of the 18th Street New York City WeWork space this past spring.  The intention of this study was to measure the effect of AtmosAir air purification systems on the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) of the space.  AtmosAir bi-polar ionization air purification systems were installed into the air handling units that supply air into the space, leading to Air quality measurements taken both before systems were installed and operating and after the AtmosAir systems in place.

RESULTS:

Overall, AtmosAir was successful in reducing particulate, VOCs, and is helping WeWork conserve energy while maintaining a more efficient HVAC system.   

As a result of the subsequent testing, AtmosAir has been installed in multiple WeWork locations including spaces in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Shanghai, and other locations.
