Across the built environment, the Coronavirus pandemic is leading to an understandable focus on healthy indoor environments, particularly in social locations and workplaces. People spend 90 per cent of time on average in an enclosed environment, where pollutant and pathogen levels are often higher than those outside. This could lead to respiratory problems, pandemic diseases and even cancer deaths. Organisations across society attempt to adjust and adapt to the post-virus, pre-vaccine phase.
In this leadership series webinar, Dr. Tony Lam, Associate Director of Sustainability, Arup, will cover the strategy and practical steps to bring people and complex assets through periods of disruption. It will also look into key considerations for building a resilient organisation with a focus on indoor environment improvement, one that safeguards the health and wellbeing of occupants.
