June 10, 2021
After a year of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people begin the transition back to working in office spaces. Building readiness becomes an important topic for many facility managers who will work to prepare facilities post COVID-19. What’s the best way to keep your occupants safe? What steps are needed to ready your building? While the answer to these questions looks different in every situation, we’re here to walk you through some of your options.
BUILDING READINESS + REDUCING TOUCH POINTS
Building readiness as a whole stretches far beyond COVID-19 safety, but this concern requires more immediate attention.
