COVID-19 Changes Everything

COVID-19 Changes Everything


In this quickly changing environment, Powerhouse is your solution to protecting employees, customers, and the general public.  For many of our customers, we’ve moved from plan to execution in a matter of days in response to OSHA and CDC safety recommendations.  We understand that everyone’s health and safety is the highest priority while we act with a sense of urgency ensuring initiatives are completed as quickly as possible.

OSHA and the CDC are recommending installing engineering controls that involve isolating employees from work-related hazards.

These types of controls reduce exposure to hazards without relying on worker behavior and can be the most cost-effective solution to implement.

COVID-19 Changes Everything 1

Engineering controls for SARS-CoV-2 include:

  • Installing high-efficiency air filters.
  • Increasing ventilation rates in the work environment.
  • Installing physical barriers, such as clear plastic sneeze guards.

Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19:

  • Installing a drive-through window for customer service.
  • Specialized negative pressure ventilation in some settings, such as for aerosol generating procedures (e.g., airborne infection isolation rooms in healthcare settings).
  • Installing kick plates and hands-free openers
  • Store Front Board-ups
  • Dark Property Security Protocols

We can respond to your urgent Facility Maintenance and Exterior Services needs, COVID-19 Changes Everything 2as well as other COVID-19 cleaning related needs.

Powerhouse Wins “Best Digital Transformation” at NextStep 2019

Powerhouse Wins “Best Digital Transformation” at NextStep 2019


Powerhouse has been involved with Outsystems since 2018. Outsystems is a global leader in low code rapid development technologies, and is a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multi-experience Platforms and Low-Code Application Platforms, as well as a leader in the Forrester Low-Code Platforms Wave.

We were excited to be invited to their NextStep 2019 Conference at the beginning of October where we were represented by Powerhouse’s Senior Applications Developer, Mark McRight. Mark and Team have been steps ahead of Powerhouse’s growth as we’ve picked up the pace more and more every year. What an honor for Powerhouse and our spectacular IT team to be chosen for “Best Digital Transformation” out of hundreds of global Outsystems customers at the 2019 Innovation Awards!

Powerhouse Wins "Best Digital Transformation" at NextStep 2019 3

Thank you, Outsystems and DoiTLean, for your help getting here and the recognition of our team’s hard work throughout this past year!

With their rapid growth and success,  Powerhouse, a leader and innovator in Construction and Facility Maintenance, was challenged with legacy technologies and processes that were entirely dependent on e-mail, spreadsheets and disconnected platforms. Leveraging low code and rapid development tools from Outsystems and their chosen delivery partner DoitLean, Powerhouse developed a unified technology platform in just 14 weeks to reduce touchpoints through maintainable automation and workflow within several areas of their operation. The process improvement and workflow begins with New Business submission, and flows to project setup, resource profiles & allocation, performance tracking, travel booking and management. Through the implementation of high-tech process and workflow, the ability to continue unmatched customer service, project management and Quality control while continuing rapid growth is made possible.
