COVID-19 action plan in our buildings

COVID-19 action plan in our buildings

Gmp’s priority is to provide safe and healthy spaces.

For this reason, given the new situation imposed by COVID-19, we have developed an exhaustive action plan in our buildings, which is managed fully in common areas by Gmp, placing special emphasis on:

  • Promoting safe interpersonal distances.
  • Restrict capacity in sensitive common areas.
  • Reinforcing and optimising cleaning and disinfection protocols in all common areas.
  • Improving air quality inside buildings.
  • Informing about guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • Identify potential cases of COVID-19 before entering the building.

All members of the team at Gmp are working day by day to adopt the necessary measures that enable us to face the new situation safely as a result of COVID-19 and to continue moving forward in our commitment to what matters to us most: the health and wellbeing of users of our buildings.

We include a list of the measures adopted below:

COVID-19 Cleaning

Cleaning in Common Areas

  • Carrying out an initial deep cleaning and disinfection service.
  • Increasing the frequency of daily cleaning and disinfection of spaces and parts such as doors, doorknobs, elevator button panels, switches, bannisters, taps…
  • Daily cleaning and disinfection of floors with ionized water.
  • Daily cleaning with manual ultra-violet lamps of the features that are more likely to be touched by users.
  • Daily disinfection of the areas outside areas of the buildings with hypochlorite 20% solution, using backpack sprayers.
  • Regular ozone disinfection treatments.
  • Templates in toilets and elevators to be filled in by cleaning staff to show the date and time of disinfection.

COVID-19 Air quality

Air Quality

  • Incorporation of an advanced system with a high level of filtration and purification through photocatalysis in the buildings’ general air-conditioning installation to achieve air quality of a similar standard to that of hospital environments.
  • Installation of an innovative air quality monitoring system that continuously monitors the parameters of temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide, suspended particles PM2.5 and total volatile organic compounds (TVOC).
  • Installation of air purifiers in lifts and toilets.
  • Measuring outdoor air flow rates provided by ventilation units to ensure an outdoor air supply of 12.5 l/s per person.
  • Adjustment of carbon dioxide sensors to detect the level of 400 ppm plus the average outdoor concentration.
  • Changing filters according to the frequency specified by the manufacturers.
  • Indoor air quality and system hygiene check according to UNE 171330-2 and UNE 100012 standards, every 4 months as a minimum.

COVID-19 Entrance/Lobby


  • Installation of body temperature control systems via fixed thermographic cameras.
  • Setting up catenaries or other separation elements to establish flows of movement that avoid or minimise people crossing paths.
  • Placing self-adhesive tape on the floor to indicate safe interpersonal distances.
  • Installing plexiglass screens at reception desks.
  • Keeping doors open to avoid having to open them manually, wherever practical.
  • Installation of contactless hydroalcholic gel hand sanitiser dispensers. Dispensers have also been installed in the lobbies on all floors, including the car park levels.
  • Installing bins with foot pedals.
  • Reinforcing security personnel to facilitate the flow of movement of users and the adoption of the recommended preventative measures.
  • Temperature control of workers at the building and couriers before entering the building.
  • Ensuring that workers who carry out services at the buildings (security, reception staff, maintenance and cleaning staff) are equipped with the appropriate PPE.
  • Signs outside the building informing to avoid groups of smokers.
  • Creating a collaborative digital platform to control flows of people.

COVID-19 Elevators


  • Signs indicating the use of facemasks inside the elevator.
  • Information campaign to encourage people to use the stairs.

COVID-19 Stairs


Information campaign about how to use the stairs properly:

  • Maintain a safe interpersonal distance.
  • Keep to the right.
  • Avoid touching the bannisters.
  • Use gloves.
  • Do not touch your face.
  • Wash your hands when you reach your floor.

COVID-19 Toilets


  • At entrance to all toilets, installation of a system controlling the number of people inside in real time so that social distancing can be maintained.
  • Removing swing lid bins to minimise points of contact.
  • Switching off hand drying systems if they are installed in toilets.
  • Increasing water flow in taps to facilitate correct handwashing.
  • Installation of air purifiers in all toilets.
  • Information campaign on mirrors on how to wash hands properly.

COVID-19 Car Park

Car Park

  • Body temperature control systems via portable thermographic cameras.
  • Promotion of card payment. 

WELL Health-Safety Rating Certification

WELL Health-Safety Rating Certification

  • At its multi-tenant buildings, Gmp has been a pioneer in adopting the COVID-19 measures outlined by the WELL Health-Safety Rating certification, one of the findings of the International WELL Building Institute's (IWBI) COVID-19 Task Force, a team of nearly 600 public health experts, virologists, state authorities, academics, business leaders, architects, designers, building scientists and real estate professionals, created in late March 2020 to help lead the IWBI's response to the pandemic.
  • Certified buildings: Condesa de Venadito1, Luchana 23, Orense 34, Genova 27, Castellana 81, Castellana 77, oxxeo, ARQBÓREA and Parque Norte.
