Now I haven’t been to many courthouses, but I might as well prepare for it because it’s coming.
I am currently training to become a magistrate, so once in a while, I find myself in such places.
I do have a keen eye, though, for what I imagine to be a comfortable workplace, and I can tell you, courthouses aren’t really built for that. Lately, my experience being present in certain proceedings at my local magistrate court irks me because of the lack of air purification. So much goes on inside those walls, and I don’t like how uncomfortable the air quality gets. With different groups walking in and out at intervals, there’s a need for something to be done to improve the indoor air quality within the courthouses, if not the hallways. One of the challenges I know these legal rooms face is the old architectural design that was mostly duct friendly. I know little can be done to improve the situation in my locality, but considering including an air purification system is not an unrealistic demand, like demanding smart HVAC setup everywhere. The stuffy air and the wide open spaces around the courthouse are prime places for loose dust and other pollutants to settle on. Already the administration bears a high cost to hiring an HVAC technician to handle duct cleaning and maintain the air filters. I know I’ll have to get used to the environment before change happens. However, I hope the HVAC professional can offer some air purification help sooner so that the HVAC equipment can operate optimally. The situation at the courthouses makes me appreciate the whole-home air purification back at home and the timely home service that keeps the HVAC in good working condition.
