Gain focus for your facility operations

Operating buildings during the Covid-19 pandemic is full of uncertainty. Sudden shutdowns followed by months of no-to-low occupancy have thrown systems out of balance. Even buildings that have remained operational need to be tuned to minimize the spread of airborne and waterborne threats.

McKinstry delivers confidence whether your intent is a temporary shutdown or a return to full re-occupancy.

System Protection in No-to-Low Occupancy

Buildings cannot operate at no-to-low occupancy for prolonged periods. Mechanical systems lose efficiency. Pipes and plumbing fixtures corrode. Dangerous bacteria, including legionella, builds up.

McKinstry experts will safeguard health and safety, mitigate system degradation and avoid unnecessary operating and energy costs.

Return to Occupancy with Confidence

Returning to occupancy requires specific procedures to ensure the health and safety of all occupants. Building occupants must also be reassured that adequate safety measures are in place.

McKinstry experts will assess your building to create a custom action plan that will reassure occupants and allow everyone to return to your facility with confidence.
