Reopening buildings, adapting operations, rethinking workspaces: read about it in the NAIOP Research Foundation’s new guide on best practices for U.S. office building owners and tenants returning to work.

This research brief provides an overview of best practices in improving safety against the coronavirus for building owners and employers. It focuses on immediate measures to improve building safety.

The brief draws from guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Cushman & Wakefield and JLL; insights provided by Gensler staff in a recent NAIOP webinar; and recent media reports. Readers should consider referring to individual guides and to health and medical experts in your jurisdiction. A future research brief will address longer-term implications of the coronavirus outbreak for building operations.
