This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previous live event.

The pandemic brought the world to a halt and changed the way we view our relationship with the spaces we occupy, both public an private. What long-term effects will the global pandemic have on the way we design and construct buildings from now on? This insightful panel discussion with professionals from industry-leading firms explores how the design industry has changed and what we can expect in the years ahead as designers and architects are tasked with creating spaces that keep us safe.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain how the pandemic necessitated changes in the way commercial interiors like hotels, hospitals and workplaces are designed.
  • Name five key focus areas for workplace design following COVID and how space is likely to be reallocated in offices.
  • Identify four design interventions in hospitality environments to provide guests with a sense of safety and cleanliness.
  • Describe the single biggest contributor to human health in the built environment and how to design for it.
