COVID19 measures

We are delighted to say that our three business centres remain open to our tenants and virtual tenants during the COVID19 pandemic.

Our team are following Government guidelines in order to ensure that tenants, their staff and our staff are able to operate in a safe environment. Our reception team at Wittas House continues to provide telephone answering services as well as taking in deliveries for tenants and virtual tenants alike.

Some of the measures we have implemented in order to prevent the spread of COVID19 at Hexagon include:

Social Distancing

We ask everyone to abide by the 2 metre social distancing rule. We have put in place one-way system at one of our centres, but the physical layout of the others does not allow for this. All tenants have been asked to be ultra cautious and ensure that they do not cross on the stairs, give way in corridors and generally respect other people’s 2m space.

Extra cleaning of communal areas

The communal areas are always thoroughly cleaned every evening by our cleaners. ‘Touch points’ such as the intercoms, staircase bannisters, entry panel, alarm panel and door handles are also cleaned again every morning and lunchtime by one of our reception team.

Kitchens closed

The shared kitchen areas are not in use for making drinks, using the microwave or for sitting in. The sinks in the kitchens provide additional hand washing facilities.

Anti-bac and hand washing

We ask everyone to use the antibacterial gel provided at each building entrance on arrival and as on departure. Anti-bacterial soap and disposable hand towels are provided at every sink to encourage regular hand washing.

In serviced offices

Once within the realms of their own office, it is up to tenants to maintain the correct sanitation and social distancing. We have recommended the use of a personal hand sanitizer, Perspex screens for desks and frequent cleaning of key boards and phones.

Virtual tenants

Virtual tenants who have 24/7 access to their mailboxes have been requested to adhere to anti-bac and social distancing rules at all times and to respect tenants space. For virtual tenants who would prefer not to enter the building, we are able to forward their post to them.

The safety of our staff and tenants is paramount and we will continue to constantly review our procedures in line with Government advice. Rest assured that we are working hard to ensure that our business centres can stay open safely for those with serviced offices who find working at home difficult. If you have any concerns or suggestions, please do contact our reception team on reception@hexagonbusinesscentres.co.uk or call 01993 848770
