Summertown Interiors specialises in green expertise, so you can be sure they have some sage advice when it comes to the topic of returning to work in a health way.

Businesses have been told they can now run offices at 100 per cent capacity (with social distancing measures in place).

Marcos Bish, Summertown Interior’s MD, says: "Our workplaces have been fundamentally effected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and ‘rethinking’ the use of space has become a top priority for companies as they plan for their employees to return to work.

"At Summertown the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees has always been of utmost importance to us. Our employees are central to how we create value and we believe that in the current challenging climate, it is our duty to support businesses in the UAE by helping them get back on their feet with working conditions that are fit for purpose, healthier and more sustainable.”

Among recommendations from the fit-out firm are the re-configuration of floorplans to create social distancing, the installation of touchless technology and hygiene equipment.

Another top consideration to ensure the mental health and well-being of team during this phase of returning to work is the improvement of air quality with filtration and ventilation.

Good news is that Summertown’s team can help with all of these requirements and for projects over 2,000 sqm, they offer clients LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified level certification free of cost.
