HOK’s Mark Cichy will present “Technology and AEC in a Post-COVID-19 Market” on June 16.
This presentation is part of CanBIM’s Calgary Virtual Session 2020: Safer Work Environments in a Post-Pandemic Era.
Predicting exactly how the world will be impacted by COVID-19 is impossible. But this crisis will have a profound effect on how designers approach safety for building occupants. Designers should expect to pay more attention to infectious disease control, and to adapting buildings to accommodate the technological systems and processes required to help keep people safe.
Participants will explore the answers to questions like:
- What role will infectious disease specialists play in the design process?
- How can a building’s IOT strategy help it collect data required to perform epidemiological contact tracing?
- How will these new requirements affect existing buildings and future projects?
- What are the long-term supply chain implications?
