SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Ascott, CapitaLand’s wholly owned lodging business unit, is committed to adapting to a post-Covid-19 landscape.
Specifically, Ascott will ride on trends such as working-from-home, deeper health and safety concerns, and rapid digitisation, it said in a press release.
“Ascott is reviewing every touchpoint within the living and workspaces of our apartments to tap on the work-from-home trend. We are also improving our digital solutions and looking at leveraging smarter technologies to provide value and safety to our guests,” says Kevin Goh, CapitaLand’s CEO, lodging, CapitaLand Group, and CEO, The Ascott.

It will also adopt stringent cleanliness and hygiene standards for its residences. Alfred Ong, head, global operations, The Ascott, says: “Safe distancing in shared spaces and increased sanitisation will be part of the new normal. A health and hygiene champion will also be appointed in each property to uphold these standards and act as an official liaison with local health authorities to ensure compliance with the latest regulatory health measures.”
