Space solutions in the 1.5 meter society

Create one and a half meters of space for a safe working environment

Social distancing is one of the most important tools in the fight against COVID-19. But how does this principle apply to your workplace? In what ways can you comply with the rules and keep your business running at the same time? 

Extra space for a safe working environment - fast

We, Losberger De Boer, can provide you with the extra space you need. Our rapidly deployable structures can be used for extra office space, additional meeting space, a temporary canteen or dining area or even a temporary workshop or production space. In a matter of days, we can start building the temporary facilities that enable you to guarantee your employees the amount of space they need to work safe and carefree in a workspace that is tailored to the ‘new reality’ of the one and a half metre-economy. Does your turnover depend on the number of customers or visitors that you are able to serve? In this case, our temporary structures can provide you a solution to increase your capacity as well. 

Social distancing measures 

Now that social distancing is mandatory, companies must take the necessary measures to enable their employees to keep one and a half metres distance from their colleagues. Companies that can offer their labour force neither social distancing nor the facilities to work from home are obliged to close down.

Being productive in the one and a half metre-economy

Even if the Corona crisis subsides in the next weeks, these measures will remain active for months. After all, the virus is still around and a new large-scale outbreak must be prevented until a vaccine is ready to be made available on a global scale. And even if the government decides to make social distancing voluntary or just advises it, instead of making it mandatory, the need and desire for social distancing in the workplace are likely to remain for quite some time. 

It is clear that many companies and institutions will have to make substantial adjustments to be productive and that the ‘one and a half metre-economy’ should be considered ‘the new normal’ for  at least several years. 

Working one and a half metres apart – is that feasible? 

For many companies, guaranteeing free space between all employees or customers within the current infrastructure, is very difficult. Oftentimes, businesses simply do not have the extra space in the office or workplace to allow everyone to work, confer or lunch at one and a half metres from each other. Desks need to be further apart, aisles need to be widened, rooms and canteens need to be furnished differently or can host fewer people, and so on.  

Especially when you have a workshop or production facility, this can seem like an gargantuan task. After all, you are dealing with machines and equipment that are not meant to be moved around, and changing rooms and locker systems might present you with another challenge.

The hospitality industry faces a particularly big challenge: to generate the same amount of revenue, with less paying visitors, or even more, to compensate for the lockdown period. Supermarkets also have to find ways to create additional space, and the same applies to educational institutions. In almost every sector, businesses are trying to answer the ‘million dollar question’: how do I deal with the new situation (the new normal) without it having a further adverse effect on my turnover? 

Quickly create extra space for social distancing

With its modular accommodations, Losberger De Boer offers companies various efficient and feasible ways to temporarily create the extra space needed to comply with regulations or wishes regarding social distancing, while at the same time allowing the company to continue to operate. 

We help entrepreneurs adapt to the 'other half-meter' economy

Losberger De Boer has developed a number of rapidly deployable solutions for the one and a half metre-workplace. We have broken these down by segment for your convenience. 

  • Temporary canteens 

By adding an extension to your current canteen, or by placing an extra stand-alone canteen, you offer your employees the opportunity to keep a one-and-a-half meter distance from each other and still have lunch together. Read more

  • Expansion of the workshop / production space

We can quickly expand your workshop or production space. Your added space can be easily scaled up and down as well, offering you maximum flexibility. 

  • Expansion of offices 

We can install additional, fully equipped office units at or near your current building. We can also build external, larger meeting rooms so that you and your team can meet face-to-face in a safe way. 

  • Classrooms and auditoria 

Add extra classrooms and lecture halls to allow a safe distance between students, utilize a crowd control tent to guarantee a safe influx of visitors into the building and add extra dining facilities for safe lunches. Read more

  • Aviation

Social distancing is difficult to achieve in aviation. Realistic options are expanding the number of terminals and installing additional hangars, because of the larger number of aircraft needed to fulfil the current number demand. 

  • Storage / warehouses

Because of the Corona crisis, many companies are stuck with cargo or leftover products. Other companies need more warehouse space to widen the aisles for social distancing. In both cases, one of our temporary storage halls can be the best solution. Quick to install, made to measure and easy to scale up and down. 

  • Sports clubs and venues

Fewer athletes per dressing room, fewer people in the canteen, fewer people in the stands… We can quickly expand your dressing room and canteen capacity, so that you can start the new season well prepared. 

  • Catering / amusement parks / reacreation

When the recreation and event venues reopen, they will continue to be confronted with the rules surrounding (and the desire for) social distancing. Do you still have some outdoor space available? We can expand your establishment quickly, efficiently and to all your specifications, so that you can receive more visitors in the safest way possible. 

  • Events / fairs

Many events will return in a scaled-down form or will simply need more space to allow visitors to keep their distance from each other. Our space solutions can help you with this. 

Modular construction, turnkey delivery

All of our temporary structures are modular, which means that they can be tailor made to your exact specifications. In addition to this, all of our temporary buildings can be easily scaled up and down, to grow or shrink along with your needs. They can be delivered turnkey with facilities such as electricity, lighting, sanitary facilities, upholstery and climate control. 

As one of the largest global suppliers of rapidly deployable temporary structures, Losberger De Boer is ready to support the business world following the Coronavirus outbreak. Within a few hours of initial contact, we can start building extra space to meet your every need.
