Echo Investment builds up ‘resistance’ of office buildings
The air breathed by people indoors significantly affects their health and wellbeing, but may also transmit pathogenic microorganisms. Echo Investment cares about the quality of the indoor air in its office buildings and is the only developer to arm them with the most effective technology for its purification. RCI ActivePure will soon become the standard in Echo Investment's office buildings that are currently being built. People spend approximately 80 percent of their time indoors, on average. Indoor air, the air surrounding people inside closed spaces, is a peculiar microclimate whose composition differs from that of the atmospheric air. It is a dynamic system subject to many changes, even in a very short time. Scientists noted that the quality of the air breathed indoors may impact our everyday lives as early as in the 1980s. As stated by Harvard Business Review in its 2017 report, good physical and mental state, increased efficiency, and even decreases in the number of sick leaves among employees are some of the discernible results of maintaining that quality in office buildings. However, it was not until the coronavirus pandemic that the society realized how many pathogenic microorganisms are transmitted via droplets through air, according to Echo Investment.
