Anti-Covid Measures Can Be Stylish... and Lighthearted

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.

Contact-free

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.
