BOMA International’s Coronavirus Resource Center
Back in January 2020, when the threat of the novel coronavirus first began to materialize, BOMA International began releasing guidance documents to provide commercial real estate professionals with credible information on how to mitigate the potential health and business impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. BOMA International continues to monitor the latest COVID-19 developments, and additional resources are being posted regularly to this webpage (www.boma.org/coronavirus). These resources include webinar recordings, relevant articles and links to helpful documents, websites and expert analysis. Members also should refer to the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) for the latest updates and best practices.
Thank you to Yardi for their support of our COVID-19 thought leadership.
New Guidance to Navigate COVID-19 Operational Challenges
The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted both the commercial real estate industry and the scientific community to consider the role building systems might play in the health and safety of building occupants. Navigating through evolving new considerations for building operations can be challenging—and often complicated—work for property professionals, which is why BOMA International has partnered with global engineering and professional services firm Jacobs to share expert guidance around optimizing building systems to maximize occupant health and safety and mitigate risk. Drawing from guidance issued by health agencies and industry organizations, Improving Occupant Safety Inside Buildings provides property professionals with timely operational recommendations for building systems. While there is no single “one-size-fits-all” solution for all building types and systems, the guidance found in this resource can help commercial owners and operators determine the best strategies and technologies to deploy in their buildings now and in the months ahead.
