TRU, Teck partner on new antimicrobial copper surfaces

Thompson Rivers University has partnered with Teck Resources Limited to install antimicrobial copper surfaces on TRU’s Kamloops campus. The new antimicrobial surfaces will provide those on campus with added protection, as copper’s antimicrobial properties can help reduce the spread of infection and help create a safe environment. Teck will install over 650 copper surfaces in places such as door fixtures and handles in three buildings: Old Main, the Campus Activity Centre, and the Chappell Family Building for Nursing and Population Health. “The health and safety of TRU’s students, faculty and staff is very important to us, which is why this partnership to install antimicrobial copper in buildings on campus is such a great initiative,” said TRU VP University Relations Brian Daly.
