To our Tenants:

 

We have evolved into a new way of life. 

 

With everyone adjusting to their new roles, Crestone Partners has been learning, researching, coordinating, and evolving the buildings into this new normalcy.  We will work together and strengthen together as we separate to stay healthy.  We look forward to your continued input to assist us in developing best practices to address the particular concerns of your employees, customers, and vendors.

 

As we all prepare programs to re-enter the workspace, we have assembled a reference guide reflecting practices to promote physical and mental wellbeing.  These are measures that will help you feel confident that you are entering an environment that respects you and your health. 

 

While reading this information, know that these practices will evolve in response to government guidance and statistical data.  This is an immediate challenge for everyone.  We are here to help you successfully re-enter the work place. 

 

The Building’s health is important to us all.  You will see janitorial measures in place, as well as HVAC and procedural changes.

   Reactivate your Space

  • Get the water circulating throughout the interior of your space.

  • Run your dishwasher a few times prior to use.
