Following the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s roadmap announcement, where he discussed the Government’s work to establish new guidelines for employers to make workplaces COVID-secure, our Workplace Advisory Services team has put together the following response
29 April 2020 - The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted that although supply chains had reached extremely high and efficient levels of quality, throughput and to some extent cost, there is very little room for error. Many manufacturers and businesses have had to close their doors to protect the spread of the virus, but others have also had to close as essential materials, parts and products have been held-up due to breaks in the chain.
Businesses and landlords needing advice on how to safely bring their staff and tenants back to the office after the COVID-19 lockdown can now receive recommendations within 48-hours from experts at Colliers International.
The global real estate consultancy is using expertise from its Workplace Advisory and Project Management teams, within the EMEA Occupier Services department, to provide, quick, detailed and innovative solutions to maximise office capacity – including cost estimates.
Colliers has established that in most corporate offices only 40 per cent of desk spaces will be usable initially when staff return to the office, because social distancing measures will be expected to continue for the next few months. This means that unless significant changes are made to layout and office design, many people will have to remain working remotely for the foreseeable future.
Sam Addison, EMEA Head of Project Management, said: “Responsible employers will be prioritising the health and wellbeing of their staff as part of their return to the office planning. However, in order to welcome staff back there will have to be a significant amount of changes to office buildings in the short-term, such as increasing distances between desks, creating one-way systems and communal areas.
“Everything is changing so quickly at the moment, which is why we’re also offering a speedy service to help businesses identify what they need to do to enable a safe return to the office, and how it can be delivered.”
The Back to Work Navigator service will evaluate five areas where changes can be made to maximise office capacity and support productivity; design, navigation, behaviour, hygiene and technology. The service is available to occupiers as well as landlords needing to plan the reopening of their multi-let office blocks.
Colliers’ will also be able to support businesses in implementing their recommendations, as well as consider the long-term strategy for their offices.
JanJaap Boogaard, EMEA Head of Workplace Advisory, added: “We expect that COVID-19 will have a long-term impact on the way that we work. We know from our global Working from Home survey that 80 per cent of respondents have said they would like to continue to work remotely at least one day a week. So, after this initial return, it is likely that office spaces permanently change again as they become more focused on bringing people together, whether it’s to work on projects or to build relationships, as opposed to daily locations where we go to do our work.”
