Global property consultancy CBRE has reopened its Liverpool office following the coronavirus lockdown.
CBRE is introducing staff back into its Liverpool and Manchester bases in a phased approach and in accordance with Government guidance. Its Liverpool office is located at No 4 St Paul’s Square in the city’s business district.
The announcement follows on from a statement issued last week detailing how CBRE had started building inspections and viewings on behalf of clients in line with Government and RICS compliant procedures.T
The Liverpool and Manchester offices 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.
John Ogden, managing director of CBRE’s Northern business, said: “Our incredible teams across the North West have adapted exceptionally well throughout these last few weeks to continue to support and advise our valued clients.
“We quickly and proactively responded to the situation, with our highly talented staff implementing multiple strategies to enable service continuation. This tenacious, entrepreneurial approach by our professional teams, supported by our leading technologies, has played a key role in keeping us connected.”
