COVID-19: Navigating Change to Work and Workplace

Design & build

The coronavirus pandemic is shaping the future of work with new challenges and opportunities. This page offers tools, processes and services for businesses navigating work-related changes associated with COVID-19.

The three phases: Now, Transition and Future

It’s important to consider every stage of change when planning for your eventual return to the workplace – the transition back to the office will look different for different businesses, but there are three core phases everyone will experience: the Now, the Transition and the Future.

These phases don’t occur in isolation, making it important to consider your workplace strategy in the short and long term. Our expertise in office fit out, office refurbishment, workplace consultancy, workplace strategy, and furniture procurement enables us to support our clients during every phase.


During the first phase, many people will still be working from home. Companies will be developing their plan for returning to the office by gathering employee sentiment data and listening closely to new government guidance.

How can we help?

We can help you prepare for your return to the office by conducting workplace risk assessments and space evaluationswith suggested modifications. We work with you to understand the kind of space you will need for a successful reintegration, taking into consideration new ways of working.


As employees are slowly reintegrated into the workplace, companies will begin to use their office space. Layouts will need to be adapted and workspace redesigned to provide a safe and functional working environment.

How can we help?

We can help you manage the transition back to the office by updating your current workspace to reflect new safety standards and regulations and support the link between home and office-based workers.


The Future will reveal the redefinition of office space. Post-pandemic workspace will see a greater focus on health and wellbeing and a positive shift towards more frequent home working.

How can we help?

We can help you prepare for the future with the optimisation and rationalisation of your existing office space. As your business evolves, your workplace will too. Our cost-effective office fit out and refurbishment services deliver tailored working environments built around your people, your goals, and your way of working.
