Shuttering facilities for weeks creates all sorts of consequences—some predictable, like the need to screen visitors for COVID-19 symptoms, and some you may not have anticipated, like potential issues with your water. Make sure these five things are in order before employees, tenants and guests start occupying your building again.

Outdoor is the new indoor
Modern Restaurant Management
January is well-known for being a reset month. A time to recover from back-to-back holiday parties and festive gatherings. A time to act on resolutions and look ahead with great anticipation to all that is possible in the new year. In the restaurant business, this also means a dip in sales, but restaurateurs are mostly undaunted. It’s the perfect slow-down to tweak recipes and menus, do some deep cleaning, or consider fresh ways to change up the customer dining experience.

Metropolis Magazine
The COVID-19 crisis is an all-hands-on-deck situation calling for input and expertise from multiple fields. Architecture is no exception, as public health unknowns call for both immediate solutions to accommodate social distancing as well as longer-term rethinking. Recently, designers and architects have been engaging with private clients and public agencies to determine what’s feasible from a regulatory standpoint in the face of multi-phased — and often wildly inconsistent and confusing — reopening dictated by state, county, and local governments.
