Honeywell unveils solutions to boost Mideast buildings' health


Honeywell Building Technologies (HBT) has announced an integrated solutions portfolio to help building owners in Middle East improve the health of their building environments, operate cleanly, comply with social distancing policies and reassure occupants that it is safe to return to the workplace. 
By integrating air quality, safety and security technologies along with advanced analytics, Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings solutions are designed to help owners minimise potential risks of contamination and create business continuity by monitoring both the building environment and building occupants’ behaviors. 
Honeywell’s new solutions provide building owners with more control over critical health, safety and security factors to encourage sustained compliance with changing building standards, safety guidelines, government-issued regulations and a company’s risk management policies, said the statement from Honeywell. 
These innovative solutions also provide transparency into a building’s health status to its occupants, it stated. 
"We are all facing a new normal - including how buildings are managed. We’re working with entities in the region to support well-being as building owners, operators and occupiers return to work, consider travel, visit shopping malls or healthcare facilities," remarked George Bou Mitri, the Vice Presidnt and General Manager at HBT, Middle East, Turkey and Africa. 
“Honeywell has developed outcome-based solutions that allow building owners in the region to transparently address how they limit exposure to and the spread of viruses while supporting their business continuity needs. We’re giving them the data they need to confidently reassure their employees to accelerate their business operations,” stated Bou Mitri.
The Healthy Buildings solutions are part of a comprehensive effort among Honeywell’s businesses to come together to quickly develop solutions that are helping important sectors of the global economy recover. 
It provides a holistic view of a building’s health based on key factors such as indoor air quality, occupant flow, personal protection equipment (PPE) analytics, thermal screening, social distancing, anti-bacterial wiring devices and sanitation efficacy, he stated. 
Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings solutions features two packages - one focused on indoor air quality and another on safety and security. 
The Honeywell Healthy Buildings Air Quality package monitors, manages and controls key parameters to create a healthier built environment while still managing energy efficiency. 
The Safety & Security package features hardware and software that can help building owners minimize risk by monitoring, detecting and responding to potential issues using integrated security tools.-TradeArabia News Service
