Skanska Care for life office concept

CFL logo
Have you ever imagined today’s reality that we’re living in right now?

It’s new for us as well. But it doesn’t mean we haven’t been prepared for it. As a continuation of the Futureproof platform, we came up with Care for Life Office Concept.

There you have a nice, quick explainer of how buildings by Skanska are going to function during these new times. Here you’ll find a few solutions prepared to make you feel safer. And smile more! Even if it’s hidden under the mask.

What is the new normal?

How to stay productive when everything goes crazy? For us, well-thought architecture is a space where people can function healthily, both mentally and physically.
As the situation may not be the best ever, we still want to derive something positive. It’s not the first time humanity had to do it. Necessity is the mother of invention. There wouldn’t be sanitation in London if they wouldn’t have had to deal with a cholera outbreak.

Healthy working environment

There’s no healthy workplace without prioritizing employees’ health itself. Both physical and mental. After detailed research, cooperation with experts and inspired by our previous actions, we keep creating spaces easy to work in.
 
Our office is the place where the natural osmosis of ideas, knowledge, and experience happen. So get your creativity on and let’s do something good together. Teamwork makes the dream work!


  

According to WHO, health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
And we stand by that.
Our philosophy is just to make you feel good. Even if you think ‘wellness’ has nothing to do with the office. Right now a friendly space goes far beyond a comfortable chair. It’s about the light. Sustainability. Nature. And, most importantly, about being social. We’ve prepared a holistic approach to your wellbeing. It is not only based on rules and sticking strictly to them. It is about healthy working environment with air quality, light efficiency, facilities for cyclists, plants surrounding, and even a special place for an office buzz – beehives on buildings’ roof. A little piece of normality makes it better!


  

How do we balance safety, sustainability, and feasibility

Aleksandra Polkowska Kramek
Epidemiologist
 
Online calls cannot simply replace social interactions

“That’s why it is so important to prepare a healthy environment both for physical and mental health. Skanska’s actions prevent spreading the virus so employees can feel safer and they have the opportunity to come back to their previous workflow.”

Skanska's road to health, sustainability and well-being

Our straight shot to always be one step ahead. And we’ve been on this road already. Now we see that our constant actions pay off.
 
By presenting you Care for Life platform, it’s easy to understand – it’s nothing new here. It’s just the continuation. Now, it’ll be easier for you to catch all of the new rules we provide in our offices to prevent spreading viruses and other diseases.

Innovative yet human
“An imposing building in the northern part of Bucharest, with futuristic architecture, is, for Viatris, that space that rises to the level of our expectations. We believe that, in order to achieve remarkable performance, the employee needs safety, comfort, and a space to inspire. We stopped our search for an office space, at Skanska. It is the place that resonates with our desires when it comes to an environment conducive to business development. At the same time, Skanska is the company that responded promptly to our requests, with employees very well trained in their fields, receptive to our proposals and very adaptable, offering innovative and sustainable solutions to create something sustainable.”

Introducing

Here’s our take on being healthy and productive while enjoying again our work premises. How does it work? Nice and simple. So save this brochure for later and in case of doubt, recall that for example not wearing a mask is a big no-no now.


   

First off.
Air quality!
When it comes to air quality, we provide fresh air supplied at 40m3/hour/person/ and 6m2/person. Even if it may sound complicated, it just means densities will be drastically reduced. Whereas the space is a little bit more crowded like kitchens corridors or primer rooms, we add extra UVGI equipment.
As the fresh air must come from somewhere, we implement openable windows in locations without significant air pollution. Humidity is still controlled between 40 and 60%. There is also an HVAC terminal that allows fit-out arrangements. Inhale, exhale!

Secondly.
Can't touch
this!
But it’s way more fun than you think. Cause technology is here! With all touch-free systems throughout the whole building such as virtual cards for specific entrances, automatic equipment and dispensers in the toilets as well as touch-free access through the turnstiles. It is friendly for everyday users and also their guest!So there's no worry. It shouldn't be more overwhelming than the pandemic itself.

Thirdly.
Give yourself
some space!
To make it nice, we’re here for you to suggest the best space planning possible. Skanska buildings are ready now to introduce meeting rooms in a special, pandemic mode. You can find there special amenities that support face-to-face collaboration. We’ll be also glad to share our space plan recommendations as the digital simulations.

What’s more? As we highly recommend biking as a great alternative to public transport, there are special biking facilities for all the bikers out there. Let’s bike up!

Lastly.
Facility management
As a proof of a healthy environment, we stick to WELL Health-Safety certification rules. Moreover, all of our sanitizing procedures are based on the CDE FM procedure. We offer free consultancy for our tenants looking to get WELL H-S rating for their premises. Clean for the occupants. Clean for the environment.
