Will Electrostatic Mist Ruin My Keyboard? A Coronavirus Office Cleaning Primer

 

Earlier this spring, Tangram, a curator of interior solutions for workspaces based in Southern California, made a quick pivot to sanitation, announcing a three-tiered, 24/7, nationwide electrostatic mist emergency workplace cleaning service, administered by professional disinfecting crews in full hazmat suits.

The return of tenants to U.S. office buildings is far from a stampede, even though many buildings are ready to open. Nationwide, 45% of companies haven’t even announced a return date yet.

My New Normal: Prologis Vice President Jason Tenenbaum

This series aims to capture a moment in time, talking to men and women in commercial real estate about how their lives and businesses are being transformed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Jason Tenenbaum's new normal is newer than most — it entails a new position and a new location.

The Prologis vice president accepted a new role within the firm and was in the process of moving from Hoboken, New Jersey, to Miami when shelter-in-place orders started to take hold. He said he didn't have a lot of respect for working from home before the quarantine, but has been surprised at how productive his team has been and how connected he feels to his colleagues. Bonus: Those moving boxes came in handy to fashion a standing desk at home.
