COVID-19 and Facility Management: how this crisis could mean the right time to upgrade your building’s technologies.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, many buildings have shut down operations to assess the crisis. This means that maybe only a handful of people – among them, facility managers – are allowed in the building to address issues that may arise. For them, this could mean that NOW is the perfect time to upgrade or install a video surveillance system, a door access control system, a phone system, a public safety DAS system (communications for first responders in case of an emergency) or a cellular DAS system (mobile device reception for end users).
These four technologies are must have in many places such as commercial real estate, higher education, schools, multifamily condominiums, hospitals and retail.
The lack of traffic within the facility creates the right conditions to work on upgrades and installations which could be affected otherwise by bigger crowds during normal times. For many maintenance managers, the absence of people throughout their buildings means areas that are generally inaccessible are now prime targets for a variety of maintenance, repair and upgrade projects. Plus, not all facility work requires people to be together, so it does respect the social distancing required during the coronavirus crisis.
