Supporting the Health of Campus Buildings

The information below demonstrates how University Facilities is supporting the health of buildings on campus by implementing the recommendations from the Healthy Building Report.

  • Over 70 touchless faucets were installed in public restrooms of academic and administrative buildings.
  • Foot pulls, designed to allow an individual to open a restroom door with a foot rather than touching the door handles, were installed on more than 250 restroom doors across campus.
  • Physical barriers were installed, as an added layer of mitigation for high-traffic areas roles that require an exchange of resources.  For many locations on campus, the recommendation was to include a desk sign and floor decal indicating the appropriate physical distance in areas where people have frequent interaction with guests or patrons such as the Boatwright Memorial Library and Heilman Dining Center.
  • Bipolar ionizations and/or ultraviolet light equipment has been installed throughout the HVAC systems on campus. 
    • BiPolar ionization, or needlepoint ionization, is the electrical charging of air as it passes through an ionization field. The system energizes the air to form bipolar (positive and negative) air ions. The HVAC system distributes the energized ions into all of the spaces served by the duct system in an in-duct installation. Ions are attracted to pathogens in the air, such as viruses, and bonds to them, This interrupts their bond to a hydrogen element and prevents the pathogen from replicating so it becomes inactive. The bi-polar ionization units University of Richmond installed produce less than 0.05 ppm of ozone; OSHA limits on ozone exposure are 0.05 ppm for an 8 hour day performing rigorous physical work and 0.1 ppm for an 8 hour day performing light work. Therefore, this decades-old technology can be used in occupied spaces.
    • Benefits of using in bipolar ionization in HVAC equipment include, but are not limited to:
      • Reduced dust and mold particles.
      • Reduced odors.  Bipolar ions break down odors at their source and eliminate them — no masking or diluting!
      • Reduced VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
      • Reduced bacteria and viruses. Bipolar ions negatively affect the DNA of bacteria and viruses which protects your space’s inhabitants from illness and disease.

For additional information, check out: 

Ultraviolet light C, wavelength 100 – 280 nanometer (nm), or UV-C Ultraviolet light is a form of electromagnetic radiation (light) that is not visible to the human eye.  It is the same energy that is produced by our sun.  UV-C is the shortest wavelength of ultraviolent light and used commercially as an anti-germicidal tool

  • UV-C is NOT for short or long term exposure to living organisms because of the radiation that is emitted.  Line of sight, or direct, viewing of a UV-C source similar to the Sun can also damage the eyes.  Overexposure to UV light (C and B) can cause damage to skin as well (think sunburn). This technology cannot be used in occupied spaces when direct line of sight can’t be blocked.

Benefits of using UV-C in HVAC equipment include, but are not limited to the inactivation of viruses and killing of bacteria and mold spores.

Cleaning & Disinfection

The University's custodial services team will follow all applicable public health guidelines for cleaning and disinfection of campus facilities.  The University's plan for cleaning and disinfection includes the following:

  • Procurement and utilization of only EPA-registered disinfectants identified for us against SARS-CoV-2;
  • Training employees with prior cleaning and custodial responsibilities to prioritize cleaning and disinfection of high-touch surfaces in their assigned areas;
  • Installing disinfecting wipe stations across campus in academic, administrative, athletic and dining spaces, with signage encouraging individuals to wipe down high-touch surfaces with which they might come into contact; and
  • Significantly increasing the number of hand sanitizer stations across campus.

  • Bi-Polar ionization, or needlepoint ionization, is the electrical charging of air as it passes through an ionization field. The system energizes the air to form bipolar (positive and negative) air ions. The HVAC system distributes the energized ions into all of the spaces served by the duct system in an in-duct installation. Ions are attracted to pathogens in the air, such as viruses, and bonds to them interrupting their bond to a hydrogen element; preventing the pathogen, such as a virus, from replicating and inactivating it.
    • The bi-polar ionization units University of Richmond are installing produce less than 0.05 ppm of ozone; OSHA limits on ozone exposure are 0.05 ppm for an 8 hour day performing rigorous physical work and 0.1 ppm for an 8 hour day performing light work. Therefore, this decades old technology can be used in occupied spaces.
  • Benefits of using in Bipolar Ionization in HVAC equipment include, but not limited to:
    • Reduced dust and mold particles. Reduced odors. Bipolar ions break down odors at their source and eliminate them — no masking or diluting!
    • Reduced VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
    • Reduced bacteria and viruses. Because bipolar ions negatively affect the DNA of bacteria and viruses, you’ll add protection to your space’s inhabitants from illness and disease.
  • Below are some hyperlinks for further reading.
  • Ultraviolent light C, wavelength 100 – 280 nanometer (nm), or UV-C Ultraviolet light is a form of electromagnetic radiation (light) that is not visible to the human eye.  It is the same energy that is produced by our sun.  UV-C is the shortest wavelength of ultraviolent light and in the commercial industry use as an anti-germicidal tool. 
    • UV-C is NOT for short or long term exposure to living organisms because of the radiation that is emitted.  Line of site, or direct, viewing of a UV-C source similar to the Sun can also damage the eyes.  Overexposure to UV light (C and B) can cause damage to the skin as well (think sunburn). This technology cannot be used in occupied spaces when direct line of sight can’t be blocked.
