Jurgen Timperman Highlights Healthy Buildings in The New York Times
Jurgen Timperman, Carrier’s President of Fire & Security was recently interviewed for a New York Times article covering how building lobbies are undergoing post-pandemic makeovers to improve security and better protect occupant health. 
In the article, “Office Lobbies Get Security Makeover, But Not One You Will See,” Timperman highlights Carrier’s Healthy Buildings vision and discusses how building operating systems and mobile applications enable a safer, more efficient and healthier occupant experience. As mobile apps replace plastic ID badges and visitors begin submitting detailed check-in information prior to arrival, occupants become digitally connected to building systems while minimizing the need for face-to-face interaction. The lobby experience today can be a more seamless and personalized experience that gives visitors a great first impression and more confidence in the indoor environment.. 
Timperman explains that “with these applications, we have all the information we need about someone before they get to the building. So, the days where somebody sits behind a desk with a big book and pen are all but over.”
