In a City Hard Hit by the Pandemic, Fisher Brothers Complete Indoor Air Quality Projects to Enhance Safety in the Firm’s Iconic New York City Buildings
Real estate giant taps RGF® Environmental Group’s air treatment solutions to protect Fortune 100 tenants, employees, residents and visitors
RGF’s technology has been shown to be more than 99.9% effective in neutralizing the SARS-CoV-2 virus within indoor spaces
Port of Palm Beach, Florida (January 27, 2021)—RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a leader in environmental design and manufacturing, is pleased to announce the completion of a significant indoor air quality (IAQ) enhancement project spanning five Class A buildings in New York City. Under the design and installation supervision of Clean Sciences Solutions, RGF’s proprietary products with PHI-Cell® technology has been deployed, protecting over 8 million square feet of premier indoor office, commercial and residential space. Owned by Fisher Brothers, this leap forward in indoor air quality enhancement serves as an added layer of protection for tenants, employees, residents and visitors against the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
“Fisher Brothers is committed to ‘Excellence in Offices’, and as a fourth-generation company, our history is tied to that of New York City. We want to contribute to the return of a vibrant Manhattan through the adoption and deployment of world-class air treatment solutions for the hundreds of thousands of individuals who work and live in and visit our buildings,” notes Kenneth Fisher, Co-Managing Partner of Fisher Brothers. “We are committed to a safe work environment for our neighbors, friends and colleagues.”
“As a national leader in the fight to overcome the global pandemic, RGF is working tirelessly in the deployment of our industry-leading, patented air purification products in office buildings across the United States,” notes Tony Julian, Vice President of Commercial Products, RGF Environmental Group, Inc. “This project provides improved indoor air quality for some of Manhattan’s most iconic buildings. We are pleased to partner with Clean Science Solutions and Fisher Brothers as leaders in their field.”
Thomas Misisco, CEO of Clean Science Solutions, notes, “Fisher Brothers is leading the way to a higher standard in Indoor Air Quality for Manhattan office and residential buildings. With the installation of RGF’s air treatment solutions, Fisher Brothers demonstrates their commitment to tenant and resident safety.”
The full-scale installation of RGF’s PHI Cell® technology was performed following a pilot program overseen by multiple third-party independent laboratory consultants. The pilot project compared baseline air quality measurements against space with active PHI-Cell® technologies installed. As a part of the pilot, engineers introduced volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the test space. The laboratory results confirmed that RGF’s equipment rapidly and effectively eliminated the VOCs. While the pilot project was active, the building engineers began preparation and planning for continued IAQ equipment installation. Upon review of the successful pilot project and confirmation of the findings, installation throughout five buildings commenced and was completed according to a fast-tracked schedule.
The five buildings include:
Not only does RGF technology effectively eliminate VOCs, but RGF’s active air treatment solution also kills bacteria and viruses on surfaces and in the air. An independent third-party study evaluated the efficacy of RGF’s proprietary products with PHI-Cell® technology in the inactivation of SARS-CoV-2. The study demonstrated a rate of effectiveness that is greater than 99.9% against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The testing, performed at the Innovative Bioanalysis Laboratories in Cypress, California, looked at neutralizing the virus within the occupied space in the air and on surfaces.
