Tenant improvement fit-out: a guide to going touch-free

Let’s work together to create safe spaces where we can limit the spread of germs, starting from the basic fit-out plan. With Covid-19, how we approach high-touch areas of any workplace will be impacted. When improving a tenant fit-out, the emphasis needs to be on reducing the number of touch-points and leveraging as many hands-free and touch-free options as possible. In this new world, these technologies that were deemed luxuries have now shown themselves to be essential to limit the spread of germs and necessary for a safe business environment.
