Throughout the course of the coronavirus pandemic, many buildings across the country sat vacant, and fire safety systems were not always at the forefront of owners’ and facility managers’ minds. However, as workers now begin to return, it is imperative that safety conscious property managers ensure that those systems are fully functioning and up-to-date. This topic is discussed in length by Telgian CEO James Tomes and Telgian Engineering & Consulting Chief Engineering Officer Tracey Bellamy in the most recent edition of the Phoenix Business Journal. These industry experts discuss not only how COVID 19 pandemic adaptations to buildings can create serious unintended safety risks, but also adaptive building reuse and potential risks and consequences.
