Building Performance Insights

In April’s newsletter, we spoke about the opportunity for us all to build back better as we emerge from the pandemic.

Last month we highlighted that all the data was pointing to a bright future as we emerge from the pandemic.

This month the Government took the decision to delay the “irreversible” step of fully opening society until 19th July and continues with their recommendation to work from home where possible.

Despite this move and the increases in COVID-19 infections due to the Delta variant our future still looks very bright. The UK vaccination programme has been a world class success, with over 42 million adults having received their first dose at the time of writing, the world’s 6th best performance.

By the 19th July the Government hopes to have offered a vaccine to all adults and vulnerable groups in the UK.

This means that we are likely to see an opening of society by 19th July or shortly there after and our people will be free to return to their workplaces. Many will want to return immediately to socialise and catch up with their peers and colleagues but will seek to retain the flexibility of home and blended working gained during the pandemic.

Employees will be seeking assurances that their workplaces are COVID-19 secure and safe to return to. We believe that there is an enormous opportunity to make all existing workplaces healthier and more productive in addition to making them COVID-19 secure and we’ll cover how to do this in our July webinar “Managing a Safe and Productive Return to Your Workplace” at 11am Thursday 22nd July 2021.

Over the last 18 months our team has developed Covid-19 secure and productive solutions for clients. We are now extending this support with a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the University of Reading and Henley Management School, supported by Innovate UK to apply Artificial Intelligence to improve workplace performance, health, and wellbeing. Do get in touch if you would like any support in managing your return to the workplace.

Despite the latest bump in the road, we are not panicking at LCMB, as we think the future is looking very bright as we’re nearing the beginning of the end for the current pandemic.

Stay safe and do get in touch if we can help you in anyway.

Building Back A Better Future In The Workplace

As the Government start lifting restrictions, finally we can start returning to the workplace.

But let’s not return to our old ways. We need a new route to safe and sustainable working environments. And that’s something we are passionate about at LCMB.

Do you know exactly how many of your employees are returning to work full- or part-time? Have you worked out how much space you have available if everyone were to return? Are you embracing the new hybrid way of working?

With most of us working from home during the past 14 months, everything felt a bit fragile and uncertain. It still does to a certain extent – we must keep in mind that the pandemic isn’t over yet. But thanks to the global vaccine rollout, we can look ahead to a brighter, better future. Right now, we have an ideal opportunity to adopt the lessons learnt over the last 14 months and make necessary changes to our workplaces.

Case Studies

LCMB's accelerated ROI audit

Too many organisations spend large sums of money on the wrong initiatives that generate a poor return or even a loss.

This is why we created the LCMB accelerated ROI audit. It cuts through the noise and quickly, clearly identifies the untapped performance improvement areas within your buildings.

The audit uncovers operational inefficiencies such as under-utilised space and facilities, as well as cost and energy reduction opportunities, and then provides a clear plan for realising potential.

By implementing the plan, we guarantee the audit pays for itself within 6 months and thereafter generates a positive return.

Contact John O’Brien on 01295 722823  [email protected] to discuss how the LCMB accelerated ROI audit can improve your organisation performance and return on investment.
