Social Distancing

Adjust your office space to keep your teams safe

Transition your buildings to the new normal

As the lockdown eases, it is clear that many of our public sector buildings will need modifications, to comply with social distancing recommendations and work in the “new normal”.

But how can you manage these changes across your estate?

From initial risk assessments, through to planning and implementing changes across your building estate, we can help deliver alterations quickly and economically.

These are challenging times, but we’re with you every step of the way.

Assessing your needs

There will be many things to consider when it comes to re-modelling buildings but we're here to support you.

Start off by completing a thorough risk assessment so you have a clear understanding of what adaptations are needed. Changing entrances and exits, making use of outdoor space and remodelling the circulation of footfall are all things to consider, whilst maintaining accessibility for people with disabilities.

Depending on your environment and it's uses, you may need to install safety measures - such as screens and new directional signage - or there could be more structural or mechanical requirements needed.

Shared areas, such as kitchens and communal spaces may need to be reconfigured, and adding cycle racks and additional parking could help more people access your space safely.

Whatever alterations are needed, our direct award frameworks are fully compliant and provide free feasibility and budget costing, so you can start work immediately. Speak to one of the team to find out more.
