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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
