In this 30-minute webinar, Tetra Tech’s high performance buildings experts address the sensible measures we can take in the design and operations of buildings to improve challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as make healthy buildings a focus moving forward. Currently, buildings are designed to protect structures and occupants from smoke, fire, wind, power outages, and flooding. As we navigate the new normal that we are facing during the coronavirus pandemic, the expectations of building occupants will change regarding health and safety. Our future buildings need to facilitate wellness, and more critically they will need to safeguard public health.

After watching our webinar, you will be better able to:
  • Understand how our increased awareness of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 will impact the way occupants view buildings and their role in our health and safety
  • Review physical environmental design concepts and discover what design enhancements we can make to the building systems and architecture to make buildings healthier
  • Review building operational changes to understand what building owners can do to improve cleaning strategies and air quality
  • Review important social behavioral changes to see what building occupants can do and how we can influence those behaviors to improve the health and safety of fellow occupants
