Health, Wellness and Productivity: Healthy Buildings Short and Long-Term Strategies
To operate a healthy and safe building during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, building owners and tenants need to evaluate behavioral, spatial, material, and operational strategies to protect the health, welfare and privacy of building occupants. Technology, automation, and innovation play a pivotal role in workplace reentry programs and a myriad of solutions focused on making buildings “COVID-safe” have quickly entered the market. This series introduces both near as well as long-term sustainable strategies and technologies that facilitate re-occupancy of healthy and safe workplaces.
Whether newly introduced “COVID-19 safety” technologies (e.g. scanners, UV-C sanitization, touchless controls and others) effectively help to stop virus spread or are merely a costly for show investment is disputed. This session showcases successful COVID-19 building technology programs based on relevant long-term strategies.
