Covid has without doubt altered the way we work and where, we will no longer use the ‘office’ in the same way. Working remotely has taught us that we can. However we are unlikely to ever give up our working office environment completely. Isolation and connectivity issues make working from home less than ideal as a permanent solution.
Tackling Coronavirus is down to everyone following the guidelines, keeping their distance, washing their hands regularly, using their elbow to cough or sneeze into, using face masks etc. Every step has been established to protect ourselves and will help to protect our neighbours, colleagues, friends, and family members.
Getting ready for Back to School in September can be challenging for schools at the best of times. With Coronavirus on everyone's minds, we all know how important it is to follow government guidelines and make sure everywhere is as safe as possible. Schools have stayed open during lockdown, providing essential childcare for key workers. These children have formed isolated ‘bubbles’ to keep them safe whilst they learn and play.
With numerous weeks sheltering under the ‘Stay At Home’ umbrella and uncountable home classes, I find myself wondering whether my children will discover what many of us secretly question, is the traditional way of schooling really necessary for learning? With the new normal beginning to take shape and a life that is expected to be different even after the virus’s impact lessens maybe so will the need for our classroom lessons!
The Stadium Canopy is the latest addition to our canopy range and is an adaptation of our popular Arbor Canopy.
Here at Bailey Streetscene we now recycle used stamps and printer toners for charity! We donate the used stamps from all our regular post and the empty toner cartridges from our office printers. We are all determined to reduce waste and make changes in order to improve the environment.
Bailey Streetscene supplied a Cycle/Motorcycle Shelter as well as a large monopitch vehicle canopy to the new combined campus for Lincolnshire Fire, Police and Ambulance services.
When the inevitable happened and Covid-19 lockdown was not only announced but enforced on 23rd March 2020, our country changed. No longer was it considered safe to go to work, to travel, to use public transport. We saw the entire population begin to walk, the roads were clear and for the first time in decades towns, villages and cities saw the return of the bike!
The department for transport has developed a £2 billion scheme to boost green transport across the country. We have already seen temporary barriers set up across roads in cities to provide larger paths and cycle lanes, making it easier to maintain social distancing during this pandemic.
Choosing the correct materials is vital when designing and specifying outdoor furniture for the future. In light of our current global climate emergency, the process has become more crucial than ever. It is paramount to select materials that balance aesthetics, durability and sustainability that the environment quite rightly demands to be considered.
