FLOORPLAN GUIDLINES

FLOORPLAN GUIDLINES

Continuing to evolve as situations develop. 
 

As businesses begin to reopen, uncertainty remains not only for your patrons and customers, but also for your employees– how can we provide a safe place for our employees, customers, and students? 

We are looking at all aspects of design from the today/tomorrow/future point of view and creating design guidelines around those anticipated needs - the “new normal” of design.
 

AS ENVIRONMENTS ARE BEING ALLOWED TO OPEN, WE ARE TASKED WITH ENSURING THEY MEET FDA,  CDC, AND EPA GUIDELINES AS WELL AS LOCAL STATE AND MUNICIPALITY REGULATIONS. 

WHILE THESE PLANS MIGHT NOT COVER A SPECIFIC REGIONAL MANDATE, THEY DO OFFER A GLIMPS INTO SAFE SOCIAL DISTANCING PRACTISES YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WITHIN YOUR SPACE FOR THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF OTHERS.
