Resilient buildings are those able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions. In today’s world, that means sanitizing with new cleaning schedules and a fresh approach to HVAC management, filters, air quality, humidity control, and disinfectant.
Many organizations are planning workplace reorganizations, with more remote access and social distancing in the office. Then there are the energy and transportation implications of the shutdown.
Host Professor Hardy is an expert in facilities management. Hardy developed the first Human and Environmental Factors Competency Guidelines for the International Facility Management Association and served as principal author on the Facility Management Commissioning Module for the Project Resource Manual from the Construction Specifications Institute.
Come hear these speakers share their perspective about how COVID-19 is changing building operations, finance, and workplace health and safety.
