What labs can teach us about safely returning to offices

Better data management protocols allow building managers to improve efficiency and effectiveness by targeting air-quality measures exactly where they are needed. The Smart Labs program, created by UC Irvine with support from Aircuity, and subsequently adopted by the University of Pennsylvania, Michigan State, Arizona State, and Eli Lilly, has proven that these advanced technologies make buildings more efficient, safer, and smarter than they were previously. Those technologies and related best practices can now be put to wider use in all kinds of environments, through both new construction and the retrofit of existing buildings.
