Frequently Asked Questions regarding COVID-19 measures

Yes, all Kadans buildings are open and have remained open during the pandemic. In order to keep working in the buildings safe for both tenants and visitors, Kadans has taken several measures and has issued some basic instructions. Read the flyer to check the instructions.

Kadans wants to keep working in their buildings safe for both tenants and visitors. In order to do so, measures have been taken in the buildings and a set of instructions apply, based on the instruction lined up by the RIVM. The basic instructions are:

  • Feel welcome in our building and act responsibly
  • If you have a sore throat, cough, fever and/or other flu-like symptoms: stay home!
  • It is advised to keep at least 1.5 meter distance from others and avoid group formation
  • Follow the instructions and follow the signage
  • Follow the indicated walking routes
  • Use the lift as indicated, take the stairs if possible
  • Wash your hands regularly

You can download a flyer with these instructions here.

Each building also has its own implemented set of measures, based on the structure of the building. These measures have been separately communicated with all tenants and can be found on the signage in the building for visitors.

Yes, visitors are welcome in the building. Please remind your visitor of the instructions issued by Kadans in order to keep working in the building safe for everyone. You can download the flyer with instructions here.

In line with the Dutch government recommendations, a mask is not required in public spaces.

Kadans does not set rules for the leased spaces, so whether or not you have to wear a mask in the offices is up to the lessee to decide. Within the leased spaces, the lessee can set rules for their employees and is responsible for following the 1.5 meter rules set by the Dutch government.

Kadans has implemented signing to tell you what the measures are in the common areas. Please follow these signs. Implemented measures may include (but are not limited to):

  • Use the lift with the maximum number of people indicated on the stickers
  • Always use the stairs in accordance with the signing
  • Ascending traffic as much as possible via the main stairwell
  • Downward traffic as much as possible via the emergency stairwell (without use of emergency exit)
  • Walk as far as possible to the right in the corridors and keep your distance
  • Keep at least 1.5 meters away from other people, including at the reception, coffee machines and pantries
  • Keep the toilet portal as free as possible

Entries are equipped with a sanitizing station. It is recommended to sanitize your hands upon entering the building and then follow further signage and instructions.

A sticker on the lift will indicate the maximum amount of people allowed on the lift at the time. This amount is based on the principle of social distancing and the 1.5-meter measures. Please follow the signs.

Signs will indicate whether stairs are one way, or if not possible, who has right of way. Generally, ascending traffic uses the main stairwell and downward traffic uses the emergency stairwell (without use of emergency exits). If using the same stairs, always keep right and follow the signage.

Yes, meeting rooms can still be booked. While all meeting rooms can be rented at full capacity again, it is recommended to still keep 1.5 meters distance as much as possible.

Yes, earlier this year we have instructed our cleaning partners to increase the amount of cleaning in the common areas. This includes shared tables as well as often-touched contact points.

On some locations there might be one-way traffic implemented. If this is the case, signage will clearly tell you which way to go. Examples of one-way traffic are the use of entrances just for entering OR leaving and using staircases for solely up or downwards traffic.

Please inform Kadans by sending an e-mail to corona@kadans.com. Follow the instructions from the Dutch government, RIVM and GGD.

Employers are asked to inform Kadans when one of their employees tests positive for COVID-19 by sending an e-mail to corona@kadans.com. With the consent of the infected and the tenant, other tenants will be informed about the risks.

Yes, the Kadans team is present as much as possible in the building. If not present, you can always contact your local Facility Coordinator by phone or e-mail.

Yes, the receptionists have continued to work on location and receptions remain open. We have adjusted the reception facility to ensure the safety of our hospitality employees. Please keep 1,5 meter distance to our employees and follow the instructions given by them.

Kadans does not set rules for the amount of people allowed in leased spaces. Within the leased spaces, the lessee can set rules for their employees and is responsible for following the 1.5 meter rules set by the Dutch government. Kadans has organized a webinar with tips for implementing measures within your office/lab. You can replay the webinar and download the slides here.

Kadans does not set a maximum amount of people for each floor. Organizations are responsible for their own leased spaces and can set rules for their employees to ensure their safety. In general, there are no restrictions to the amount of people allowed on a floor, though you have to keep 1.5 meter distance to others at all times.

The ventilation systems in the Kadans buildings are adjusted to provide safe, clean air. They are set to not recirculate the same air within the rooms. The systems differ from building to building, for each building a plan was made to adjust the system to ensure safe air circulation, to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

When the building has to be evacuated due to an emergency, all measures are lifted. Find your way out via the usual escape routes. When an emergency happens, temporary measures such as one-way routes are not in effect. When outside at the assembly point, please keep 1,5 meter distance to others again and await further instructions.

The responsibility to have enough BHV officers present lies with your own organization as usual.
