The pandemic catalyzed a new wave in demand for health and safety norms in multifamily housing. Renters are increasingly concerned that buildings are able to reduce the risk of airborne illnesses. Contractors are guiding the process by working with developers and other multifamily stakeholders and finding innovative ways to boost the health and safety of buildings during the construction process.

As the pandemic continues to unfold, multifamily property owners and tenants are demanding “healthier buildings” as they look to increase physical distancing and decrease shared contact surfaces in apartment communities,” Richard Lara, founder and president of RAAM Construction, tells GlobeSt.com. “In addition to instituting updated policies and procedures for renters and management staff, multifamily stakeholders are seeking new ways to provide healthier environments for everyone in the building. In order to accomplish this, owners and developers are turning to contractors to create innovative solutions that serve this demand, which is being considered the new normal.”
