Part of the lecture series, “AEC Industry Experiences from COVID-19: What We Did | What We Are Doing | What We Need To Do” which is addressing past, current and future initiatives, constraints and budgets. This series is being organized to identify how best to restructure our operations and how to design, construct, and manage buildings, infrastructure, and civic spaces, emphasizing social impact, sustainability, resilience, and public health, in addition to cost, schedule, quality, and safety.
For this session, Kim Yao, AIA, Principal of ARO, will address the broad topics by focusing on her experience as a partner at the Architecture Research Office, this year’s AIA National Firm of the Year. The talk will explore issues of the health and safety of staff, the integration of technology in the design process, site visit protocols, workplace social distancing, and how the profession can best advocate in these changing times.
