Iron Bridge to Install Medical-Grade Air Filtration System, UV Lights at Charleston Tech Center to Combat COVID-19
CHARLESTON, S.C. — Iron Bridge Capital Partners will install a medical-grade air filtration and UV light system at Charleston Tech Center to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or other pathogens through its ventilation system. Iron Bridge, the lead developer of the 92,000-square-foot building, expects to open the property by the end of the year. Charleston Digital Corridor will anchor the property.
The system will include an electrostatic filtration process similar to what surgery centers and medical facilities install to prevent the spread of airborne bacteria and viruses from room-to-room. Additionally, the system features a bank of UV lights that will treat any remaining pathogens, as well as reduce the amount of airborne mold and dust.
In addition to the air treatment system, Charleston Tech Center will also include COVID-19 protocols and features such as occupancy maximums for elevators and shared conference spaces, hand sanitizer stations in the lobby and at each elevator, touchless faucets and the strong encouragement for workers and guests to wear masks in all common areas.
