Commercial real estate must do more than merely adapt to coronavirus

Rent during Covid-19: landlords still hold the strongest hand
15-Apr-2020

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and the coming into force of the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 (the Regulations) much ink has been spilled about the frustration of leases. While the rapidly expanding body of literature makes interesting reading, it is largely irrelevant for real-world landlords and tenants. No one really wants to argue frustration.

Rebooting Cinemas When the Pandemic Ends
13-Apr-2020

In this article, we’ll take a forward-looking stance and focus on things to consider when starting up projection booths and re-opening cinemas again. Looking at it from an equipment manufacturer viewpoint: we know our customers run more than 360 days per year; the last show stops typically 12 hours or more after the first show started; we design our equipment to be used at least 4000 hours per year. That means that a period of consecutive months of no operations is a situation nobody is familiar with. At the start of the lockdown, it triggered a lot of questions on how to properly power down and keep equipment in standby.
