B&I Offers COVID-19 Solutions to Businesses

Broadway Palm Building

B & I offers installation of Bipolar Ionization units to businesses seeking to provide a safer and cleaner air environment to customers.

The Broadway Palm Theatre management, recently reached out to B & I Contractors to recommend and install filtration methods that would reduce the risk of infectious diseases, of particular interest COVID-19. Bipolar Ionization units are installed to safely clean the air by reducing the infectivity of common viruses.  Testing has demonstrated that common pathogens such as COVID-19, Legionella, MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and E. Coli among others can be greatly reduced with the use of this technology.


“Because of this addition to our air handlers, along with other increased health and safety measures, we are able to reopen with the confidence that our venue will be as safe as possible for our customers, employees and cast members,” said Will Prather, Owner & Executive Producer of Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. The Bipolar ionization filters provided for the Broadway Palm Theater were supplied by Commercial Air Management (CAM) and will be installed in the airstream of the air handling unit.


Similarly, Property Manager of Beachway Professional Center, Marlene Downer contacted B & I to inquire about HVAC UV light technology. However, once she learned about bipolar ionization, she determined that it was the best and most cost-efficient solution she could offer her concerned tenants. “I wanted to let my tenants know that I am doing something for them and having ionizers throughout the building is a great idea,” shared Marlene.  B & I will be installing 53 Ionizers to service the air handlers on the 3 floors of the Beachway Building.


Established in 1960, B & I has offices located in Fort Myers, Tamarac, Sarasota and Tampa. The employee-owned company specializes in providing HVAC, electrical, plumbing, refrigeration and building maintenance services for commercial, institutional and industrial facilities throughout Florida and beyond.
