Capital Associates (www.casso.com), a full-service commercial real estate development and property management firm, has announced that a flu prevention program has been instituted in the majority of the 3.4 million square feet of commercial space managed in the Triangle. The program includes enhanced cleaning procedures, signage in common areas, and personal-care education.
“We are entering the flu season with H1N1 influenza still prevalent in our communities,” says Jack Davenport for Capital Associates. “We are trying to do our part in reducing the spread of germs in office settings.”
To achieve this, Capital Associates is working with janitorial contractors, including MG Capital Maintenance, to implement enhanced touch-point cleaning procedures, which involves using EPA-registered disinfectants to minimize bacteria on frequently touched door handles, light switches, elevator buttons, hand rails, and other fixtures.
Additionally, hand sanitizer dispensers have been placed in the main lobby of each building, and hand washing reminder decals have been installed on restroom mirrors. The firm has also sent e-mails containing helpful information regarding disease prevention hygiene methods for distribution to all building occupants.
Prominent Triangle properties managed and leased by Capital Associates include Weston I and II, Springfield Place, The Summit, 1255 and 1255 Crescent Green, The Exchange at Meadowmont, and Two Hannover Square. The firm also manages and leases space at Keystone Technology Park, a leading innovation, and research and development business park in Durham, NC.
