Modern office spaces have been heavily focused on improving the tenant experience, with developers and property owners going to great lengths to ensure their tenants remain happy and productive. However, some of the more recent office trends, including high density, minimal private offices and a heavy reliance on elevators, have made it challenging for office buildings to meet the new COVID-19 health guidelines many of us have become familiar with over the last few months.
Existing spaces could be retrofitted to better protect against COVID-19, but that can be expensive and, in some cases, is not possible. Or, new developments could incorporate protective measures from the beginning.
