ACEC Research Institute to Host Webinar on Post-Pandemic Building Density on January 14

The ACEC Research will host the Building Density in the Post-Pandemic World webinar at 2:00 pm EST on January 14. The webinar is the next installment in the Institute’s Future of Engineering Roundtable series.

During the hour-long discussion, panelists will address a number of questions:

  • How will building designs change in the future, particularly for traditionally densely occupied buildings such as urban high rises in the CBD, healthcare and education?
  • What are the critical design changes needed to ensure occupant safety in the future?
  • How do design considerations differ for urban vs. suburban buildings relative to occupant safety?
  • What is the right balance between high-efficiency and health considerations in buildings? What will employees expect and demand?
  • Will there be greater use of outdoor spaces in the future? What are creative ways to accomplish this in building design?

Participating in the hour-long discussion will be Sabrina Kanner, EVP, Development, Design and Construction, Brookfield Properties; Colin Rohlfing, Director of Sustainable Development, HDR; and Kate Wittels, Partner, HR&A Advisorys, Inc. Joseph Bates of the ACEC Research Institute will moderate the discussion.
