Back-to-work scenario: these are the High Tech Campus corona measures (August 12)

Aug 12, 2020 5:14:14 PM. By: Ingelou Stol

The health and safety of our High Tech Campus residents and visitors is our main priority. That is why we are working on a back-to-work scenario, to make the Campus safely accessible in our new 1.5 meter society. We take the advice of the RIVM very seriously and that's why this blog is continuously being updated. Please respect your own company policy when you're allowed to return to work

What's new in this blog?

  • Coffeebar LOKL opens again on August 24! In this blog you will find all the restaurants that are open, including the opening times
  • In September, we will introduce a counting system at the entrances and exits of the restaurants in HTC 5 (Brave New World, Okinawa, Tlab) and HTC 1D (Daely, Subway). This way we ensure that there are not too many people inside at the same time, and we can guarantee the 1.5 meters.

What measures will be taken at the High Tech Campus when you return to work? 

As High Tech Campus Eindhoven we are doing everything in our power to make it comfortable for our residents to return to work. Below a list of all the measures that are taken at the Campus. We also call on everyone to take their own responsibility to adhere to the basis rules of the RIVM. 

The following measures will be implemented on the Campus in the coming weeks. Companies of the following buildings will provide their own measures: Philips, Signify, TomTom, TMC, Brunel, NXP, Shimano, NorthC, TWICE and ASML. Please respect your own company policy. 

Parking garages
If you travel to the Campus by car, you will immediately notice a change in the parking garages. You will find the general rules of the RIVM and the High Tech Campus guidelines in the new 1.5 meter society. Please follow the signing on the floor, and keep right as much as possible. 

A new corona policy will be introduced in the parking garages:
  • Between 6:30 AM and 2 PM, the stairs may only be used down, and the elevator for anyone who wants to go up.
  • Between 2 PM and 8:30 PM, the stairs may only be used up, and the elevator down only.
If you cannot walk stairs, you can of course take the elevator. We always make an exception for this.

At the bicycle parking spaces in the garages there will also be an information leaflet.

The Strip (outside)
Keep right when walking on The Strip, but also on for example the stairs and elevator. When the population of the Campus increases and keeping right isn't enough anymore, we will also indicate a walking route how to get from A to B. In case of an emergency, please follow the signs of the escape route, and not the COVID-19 signing. Please take your own responsibility when moving around the Campus.

The benches on The Strip will be removed so that there is enough walking space for everyone. We are going to make two large terraces, where you can have lunch with colleagues at 1.5 meters. You will find the terraces at High Tech Campus 1A by the water, and at the Food Lab.

Organizing barbecues is possible again, but only via our catering facilitator Eurest. You can contact them for more information: saleshtc@compass-group.nl

In the restaurants we provide spacious paths and there will be plexiglass at the checkouts. 

Our catering facilitator Eurest is also looking for innovative solutions to make our restaurants as comfortable as possible. When the population of the Campus increases, they will also implement two lunch shifts. We will keep you updated about this.

In September, we will introduce a counting system at the entrances and exits of the restaurants in HTC 5 (Brave New World, Okinawa, Tlab) and HTC 1D (Daely, Subway). This way we ensure that there are not too many people inside at the same time, and we can guarantee the 1.5 meters.

In every meeting room you will find hygienic products to wash your hands. And if you prefer you can also clean the attributes you touch, such as the table, clicker of beamer. And we also ask people to bring their coats and bags into the room.
