As states across the nation start phased re-openings, companies are determining how to return their employees, clients and visitors to the office safely.
Monday Properties, a leading national real estate investment and development company, and Kastle Systems, America’s largest managed security services provider, have partnered to implement KastleSafeSpaces, an integrated, building-wide plan to safeguard the health and safety of workers returning to the workplace. Monday Properties will be leading the commercial real estate sector in implementing this technology in the D.C. metro area at their world-class office tower, 1812 North Moore Street in Arlington, Virginia, home of Nestle’s U.S. Headquarters. The comprehensive system enables office buildings to play a significant role in virus screening by activating touchless access points, promoting social distancing practices and through contact tracing.
Kastle Systems previously announced the launch of KastleSafeSpaces as part of a framework for a safe office re-opening.
“At Monday Properties, the health and safety of our tenants remains our number one priority, and during this challenging time, we’re working to find practical and efficient solutions,” said Jennifer Burns, Senior Vice President of Property Management and Operations, Monday Properties. “As the first commercial real estate landlord to fully implement this technology in one location in the D.C. metro area, we’re proud to be a leader in the space and partner with Kastle Systems. KastleSafeSpaces is providing a way for us to leverage the existing infrastructure we already have in our building, while incorporating upgrades that will better safeguard our tenants health and safety as they return to the office.”
Kastle has combined five decades of security experience with best practices around managing the novel coronavirus to introduce KastleSafeSpaces, which lets workplaces re-open by making their spaces smarter and safer, while maintaining a level of convenience enabled by technology.
Monday Properties is integrating KastleSafeSpaces technology into its property at 1812 North Moore Street, focusing initially on touchless technologies for both tenant and visitor experiences, employee screenings for safe access, occupancy control and contact tracing enabled by access control and exit reader implementation.
Kastle CEO Haniel Lynn said, “From the minute you walk up to your office building to when you get to your desk, KastleSafeSpaces integrates a coordinated system of touchless technologies for doors, turnstiles, elevators and more, to get employees and visitors safely to their destination. Additionally, KastleSafeSpaces can help facilitate employee screening, social distancing and contact tracing processes to reassure workers returning to their offices.”
