Developers also look into improving wellbeing and indoor air quality to help eliminate COVID-19 fears
As India progressively recovers from the pandemic, developers get busy redesigning office spaces and implementing tech solutions to ensure employees’ safety as they return to work-from-office, reported ET Realty.com.
A CBRE research report revealed that developers are digitalising their existing and upcoming buildings to help reduce concerns among occupiers.
Technology enhancements that are being utilised include biometric facial recognition, smart security, visitor access control, touchless systems, smart elevator programming, etc.
Revamps such as greener lobbies, more shared event spaces, and higher hygiene standards, are also being undertaken by developers to eliminate COVID-19 fears.
In terms of improving indoor air quality, developers are considering installing UV air filtration systems, as well as upgrading air ventilation.
Employee wellbeing has also been a major focus, so landscapes are being improved to assist in employee comfort and anxiety reduction. Health and wellness facilities will be added, along with containment rooms with separate air circulation to isolate suspected staff, the report said.
Arvind Kumar, special chief secretary MAUD, said that in times like this, concepts such as ‘walk to work’ are set to gain traction.
He added that the government has come up with an integrated township policy. It states that any developer having a site of over 100 acres beyond the ORR with plans to set up an integrated township, which has office space and residential space to enable walk-to-work convenience, will be offered numerous incentives.
He said, “There are two such developers and one of the sites is 480 acres that are coming up on the outskirts.”
