Small Businesses or Building Owners fill out a questionnaire, providing photos of existing conditions:
Architectural Plan & Reflect Ceiling Plan of Space in conjunction with Mechanical/Plumbing equipment specifications available.
Follow-up with site visit.
Develop plan & section diagrams based on existing conditions for how to re-design space and adjust occupancy loads to accommodate the new rules.
Refining entrances, foyers, lobbies, and egress sequences.
Retrofit of entrance doors, take out windows, cash wrap barriers, or door hardware.
For mechanical systems – upgrade to higher efficiency filters, clean and sanitize HVAC duct system, install UV light purification.
For Plumbing systems – thorough water test and flush of entire system, retrofit filtration system and temperature gauge, touchless fixture upgrades at sinks
Develop cleaning maintenance protocol
Signage: Safety distance decals, wayfinding updates by code
All in one
Fits all budgets
Include subcontractor contacts and manage process to obtain proposals and execute the workflow from initial site visit through completion.
Help research and coordinate orders for materials since there will inevitably be long lead times on filters, cleaning products, printing orders, etc.
If work goes beyond maintenance and creative interior retrofits (and filing with Department of Buildings is required) then RYSQ can coordinate with licensed architects and other professionals as needed.
The intention of this service is that it wouldn’t require that and to be able to perform at various budgets from shoestring to high-end.
