Coronavirus / COVID-19

Updates for Innovation Place Tenants

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, Innovation Place continues to review our practices and provision of services to our tenants.  We are taking direction from provincial and federal health authorities and are closely monitoring requirements to keep our staff, tenants and guests safe in our parks.

Innovation Place Updates
On May 4, Phase 1 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan commenced. We, like you, have started to think about our return to work plan and how we can continue to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our staff and tenants as individuals begin to return to Innovation Place.

Many tenants may have questions regarding our operations as they plan to return to their office. For your information, we have compiled a list of what you and your team can expect upon your return to Innovation Place:

  • Janitorial staff will continue to provide frequent, ongoing sanitation of touch surfaces in our common area spaces – this includes washrooms, elevator buttons and common area seating. Regular daily cleaning within tenant suites did not stop while you were away, and has not changed. If additional cleaning is required within your space as part of your return to work plan, please let us know.
  • Protocol has been implemented for deep cleaning/sanitation of space, should an occupant of one of our buildings test positive. Please continue to advise our team should you become aware of a presumptive or positive case.
  • Our building systems have continued to run as per usual. There have been no disruptions to our heating, cooling or ventilation systems or the required maintenance of these systems.
  • There have been no disruptions to the potable water supply in the park. Common area water fountains have been temporarily shut off but water bottle fill stations are still available for use.
  • We are in the process of developing necessary signage, however for the time being, we are asking our tenants to maintain social distancing, whenever possible. This includes the use of elevators, stairwells and common area corridors and seating areas.
  • Common area furniture has been temporarily reduced to accommodate 2-metre social distancing requirements. Congregating in common areas is not recommended at this time.
  • No modifications have been made to parking lots or bike storage locations. Please continue to exercise social distancing in these areas.
  • As we are able to acquire wall mounted and pedestal hand sanitizer stations, these will be positioned at entrances and in high traffic common areas. They are in high demand and currently on backorder. Continue to use good hand hygiene and utilize the provided common washrooms to regularly wash your hands. Hand sanitizer within tenant space is a tenant responsibility to provide.
  • Our food services providers are working on a reopening plan per Phase 3 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan.
  • We are working on a plan to re-open the Fitness Centres, per Phase 3 of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan.
  • At present, in-person events and programming have been postponed. Keep an eye on the Scene for ongoing webinars/Zoom events.
  • Our reception areas (Regina Administration Office, Saskatoon Administration Office and Saskatoon Maintenance Office) are secured and closed to the public. Doorbells have been installed at each entrance for urgent or immediate assistance.
  • Maintenance staff and a reduced number of administration staff will continue to be on-site to ensure no service disruption to our tenants.
We would again like to thank our community for doing your part to help flatten the curve and take care of yourselves and each other. As we start to see an increase in park population, we ask that you continue to adhere to social distancing regulations and good hygiene practices. Together, we can make a difference in keeping each other safe.

Safety is our first priority at Innovation Place.  Should you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
