CBRE has confirmed that it has re-opened its Leeds office, with employees returning back in a phased approach and in accordance with Government guidance.
The announcement follows on from a recent statement issued by the leading global real estate firm detailing how CBRE has commenced building inspections and viewings on behalf of clients in line with Government and RICS compliant procedures which prioritise the safety and well-being of staff and clients.
The Leeds office will follow CBRE’s internal guidelines for office re-opening which include complying with local government requirements; adapting space to ensure social distancing; adhering to cleaning and hygiene supply protocols and posting instructional signage. Bringing employees back to the office has been based on factors that include community readiness, work-from-home options, commuting issues and consideration for any employees who may be at-risk.
Richard Bamford, managing director of CBRE’s Leeds office, said: “The CBRE Leeds team has worked incredibly well over the last three months, finding innovative and new ways of working and adapting quickly to continue to support and advise our clients through this very difficult time.
“Using our leading technology we have stayed very well connected as a team and have strengthened our capabilities with the addition of three new staff during the lock down period.
“I am extremely pleased to now be welcoming staff back to what is a refreshed and safe office environment following some refurbishment and refit work by our GWS principle contracting team which commenced before the lock down.
“The GWS team overcame many challenges to deliver an exceptionally high-quality product with minimal delay and within budget. We are looking forward to viewings and inspections taking place as we start to see government restrictions eased and businesses coming back to a more normal state of operation.”
