There are tasteful approaches for everything—even for the signs and stickers that tell people how to be health-safe. Get inspired by Prague’s Parkview office building.
At the end of last year, the developer Skanska and the property manager Knight Frank implemented a number of anti-Covid measures at the Parkview office building in Prague’s Pankrác district.
The biggest changes can be found in the lobby—the reception is newly protected by a glass shield, disinfection is available in several places to all new arrivals, and elegant stickers and signs provide reminders of health-safe behavior at nearly every step.
Smart technologies are also helping in the fight against the coronavirus. All of Parkview’s tenants can take advantage of the Connected by Skanska operating system, integrating a feature called “mobile entry”—they can open the tourniquets and doors into the building contact-free, just by swiping their phone. Meanwhile, smart lockers from Blocks mean that people don’t have to meet up with a courier personally, and so package pickup is also contact-free. Also Laundrybox, another contact-free service, is deployed at Parkview.
A contact-free thermometer is likewise installed at the entrance. “The temperature measurement is currently voluntary, but we are considering making it a required preventive procedure before entering the building,” notes Petra Machartová, Corporate Marketing Manager, Skanska Commercial Development Europe.
This year, Skanska plans to begin the construction of a new office complex, Port7, in Prague’s Holešovice district, and it would like to implement a comprehensive set of measures here that it groups under its “Care for Life Office Concept.” “This approach has four sections—air quality, contact-free solutions, consulting services as regards the space plan (the layout of the interior) for tenants, and a facility management plan,” explains Marchartová.
