As the lifting of shelter-in-place COVID-19 mandates get closer to reality, there are many unanswered questions on what “going back to normal” actually looks like. Every industry and every company have been impacted, and most are struggling with how businesses should adapt in the new environment. One of the biggest concerns is how and when people will feel safe again.
The AEC community gathered on a ZOOM Webinar on May 6, 2020, to discuss its pivotal role in gaining consumer confidence and building a more resilient normal, not only by making the needed changes to our buildings and public spaces, but also in educating the public along the way. More than 475 people participated online worldwide.
The discussion focused on how building design can help address consumer fear, deliver solutions, and communicate effectively with clients and the public.
