As a result of COVID-19, the built environment is expected to wake up to an urgent need to ensure safe and healthy residences, workplaces, and assembly spaces. When the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and we reoccupy our spaces, we will do so with a new perspective and a revised set of expectations.

Owners, Tenants and Employees need to know that when they go back to work that their buildings are safe and well-maintained over time. Comprehensive understanding and monitoring of the building environment, particularly for recently unoccupied buildings, provides insights into occupant safety, indoor environmental quality and comfort. Assessing temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide data, as well as contaminants, air movement and ventilation through screening and monitoring, will provide a starting point to diagnose existing conditions. From there, ongoing monitoring procedures can be developed, and future adjustments can be made to ensure healthy buildings in which occupants can thrive.

This session will address some steps and strategies to implement as you begin to reoccupy buildings as well as ways to communicate to building tenants and employees.
