SINGAPORE, July 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — uHoo and ARID Indoor Air Solutions Pte Ltd, two Singapore-based indoor air quality solutions platforms, recently inked an agreement to further develop a strategic program for creating healthy buildings in Singapore through the VMC Solution (Visualize, Monitor and Control). James Paul Pilande, Managing Director of ARID, and Dustin Jefferson S. Onghanseng, CEO and Co-Founder of uHoo, signed the agreement.
Building occupants and guests can visualize and understand the air they breathe with the VMC Solution. Owners and managers of buildings will be able to detect and address invisible particles within enclosed spaces, be notified when thresholds are exceeded, and clean the air in real time.
Both companies aim to disrupt the Singapore air quality market through this partnership by providing a complete solution that enables building occupants and building managers to get reliable real-time indoor air information and insights and immediately resolve any issues that could negatively affect health.
About the VMC Solution
It was one of the selected six finalists representing Singapore at the 1st CapitaLand Sustainability Challenge, besting 270 competitors. “The project aims to provide occupants with peace of mind about the air that they are breathing by displaying accurate, real-time data. We can only improve and control Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) once we care enough about the problem and understand it well,” says James Paul Pilande, ARID’s Managing Director.
Both companies will jointly develop, market, and deploy the VMC Solution under the agreement. As part of this partnership, each company will be able to draw on the strengths of the other in IAQ, including monitoring and controlling the spread of airborne pathogens in enclosed spaces. ARID will sell, manage, install, and maintain the solution while uHoo will provide indoor air quality monitoring hardware and software solutions. “Making the invisible, visible allows us to assist building owners and managers with understanding IAQ problems within their facilities,” uHoo CEO and co-Founder Dustin Jefferson S. Onghanseng shares. “This will allow them to pinpoint issues precisely and address the concerns promptly, as well as ensure a comprehensive approach to IAQ management.”
