PRS included in Knight Frank Healthcare Report

We are pleased to have been featured in the proptech section of Knight Frank’s recent Healthcare Capital Markets research report. The full content is provided below:

Since the average human spends around 90% of their time indoors, one emerging opportunity is to improve the air quality within buildings. One business doing just this is Pathogen Reduction Solutions (PRS), whose air-handling system was designed initially in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. This patent-pending, proprietary application of UVC technology is retrofitted into existing or new-build air-handling systems, and inactivates 99.9999% of dangerous airborne pathogens within a building.

Effective air sanitisation reduces disease transmission among occupants, enabling landlords and building managers to get health facilities back to full occupancy, as well as building resilience against future pathogen-based health threats.

When discussing the sustainability benefits of the PRS unit, founder Ian Sinclair says, “PRS also delivers significant, sustainable energy efficiencies and environmental benefits over the life of the asset. PRS achieves this by reducing the total power needed to run the adapted heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system through safe recirculation of indoor air, rather than relying upon 100% outside air, which needs energy-consuming conditioning (temperature adjustment, dehumidification, etc). The order of magnitude of any improvement is material when considering that HVAC systems account for approximately 40-45% of a typical building’s power consumption.”
