Rapid Growth Media on Custer's Workplace Reengagement Services
MONDAY, JUNE 01, 2020
When COVID-19 shuttered and shifted West Michigan’s health systems and businesses, the workspace design team at Custer, like many, adjusted to working remotely. In addition to completing existing projects via virtual platforms, they rallied to innovate ways to help other businesses in the same predicament create resilient workspace adaptations. One of the first Custer COVID-19 projects, Spectrum Health’s facilities needed to protect staff while continuing to safely serve patients.
“We were behind the scenes helping to transform spaces,” says Sara Molina, Custer vice president of design and development. “We helped turn GVSU [Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences] [into] a COVID-19 emergency center, in case it was needed. And, their own environment needing modifications in a very quick manner to support this need to mitigate risk and protect employees from that potential contamination.”
