Covid-19 Guidance and Support Services for Building Services and Facilities Management

Although the Covid-19 pandemic has caused many challenges, it has brought a lot of people together in collaboration. Now more than ever, experts in each of their own fields are needed to collaborate, to help each other provide a strategy for success going forward. This is true for the buildings and environments in which we live and work. At BSRIA, our knowledge of buildings and their services can prove an asset to any organisation.

COVID-19 has changed the way we work and how we use our buildings. Ensuring that the workplace is a safe and comfortable environment is a vital step in maximising the productivity and happiness of the occupants. This is a challenge at the best of times but with the additional pressure from COVID-19, and the massive changes in the way we work that go along with it, new and improved strategies must be developed.

Official guidance is continually evolving and can be hard to keep track of as we learn more about the novel coronavirus, its transmission methods, and its effects on us. At BSRIA, we maintain and inform the development of new approaches and services that help mitigate COVID-19 transmission, ensuring the wellbeing of occupants, and maintaining the services within the buildings that we all rely on. BSRIA has devised several services with the aim of providing simple to understand consultancy and effective results on a range of topics.
