Back to work: Covid-19

This current pandemic is unlikely to be the last of its kind. Lessons we learn from it will shape the way we design and occupy buildings in the future. We can provide the services below.

Return to work strategy

A comprehensive assessment and report of your space, enabling decision makers to make informed, evidence-based choices on both the optimal and safest way to return to the office.

Building systems review

A detailed document and occupancy review investigating if systems are working as designed and are at an appropriate capacity for use as well as, assessing potential risks and offering mitigation options where appropriate.

Environmental monitoring

An ongoing assessment of indoor air quality which provides a user-friendly way to monitor the fresh air supply and environmental conditions in your building while, providing reassurance to occupants of the space.

Desk utilisation analysis

Looks to maximise the number of occupants for a given desk layout, whilst maintaining social distancing rules, within the constraints of the existing ventilation design. 

Social distancing tracking

Tracks user behaviour through their space, providing alerts and reports on the effectiveness of social distancing measures and compliance with policies. 

Space utilisation and communal spaces assessment

Designing for communal and downtime spaces to support the various human behavioural aspects and the impact of plants. 

Lift and stair circulation

We can propose strategies to minimise disruption to people moving vertically through buildings, whilst maintaining compliance with social distancing measures.

Lift and toilet queue assessments

We can provide smart building solutions to limit occupancy in high-density areas such as toilets and lift lobbies, displaying conditions locally to help reduce the risk of breaching distancing rules.

Review of cycle facilities

Ensuring cycle facilities align with best practice guidance with the likelihood of increased demand due to avoidance of public transport.

Material choices

A review of the existing materials with suggestions of appropriate replacements where the risk of infection can be reduced.

Cleaning protocols and equipment

An assessment of your building’s existing cleaning and maintenance protocols and frequency, offering improvements with best practice advice, appropriate signage, personal hygiene support and equipment suggestions.

Touch free movement

A feasibility assessment, looking to enable occupant movement - especially to office accommodation and the route from hand washing facilities to the canteen - whilst reducing the likelihood of touching surfaces which could be contaminated.
