Ionization Units, MERV Filters, and UV Lights Will Create Safer Facilities for Employees and General Public.
The City Council unanimously approved expenditures to improve indoor air quality in all city-owned buildings through a variety of HVAC upgrades. The HVAC systems at City Hall, the Police Department, and Public Works will be upgraded and retrofitted with a combination of bipolar ionization units, MERV filters, and UV lights.
“The City of Lawrenceville has placed a significant importance on creating safe and healthy spaces in each of our city-owned buildings,” said Assistant City Manager Barry Mock. “We will continue to look for opportunities to improve both the work environments for our employees, as well as the indoor areas that are frequented by the general public.”The new technologies utilized in the facility upgrades will formulate an active air-cleaning strategy that will improve the air quality within the buildings to a level comparable with that in many healthcare facilities. The existing systems at the Bobby Sikes Fines Arts Building, home of the Aurora Theatre, and the newly installed systems at the Lawrenceville Performing Arts Center (under construction) incorporate these same technologies.
New technologies approved by the City Council include:
Funding for these improvements has been allocated with a portion of C.A.R.E.S. Act funds. Currently, the City has allocated $83,325.00 for these upgrades. Work is expected to be completed April 2021. For additional information about the City of Lawrenceville, follow the City on social media.
