Boston – On Wednesday, January 20 at 3:30pm ET, three leaders from architecture and interiors firm Dyer Brown will dive into the details in the virtual seminar “A Post-COVID View of the Work Environment,” presented via Zoom by the New England chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR).
As the country gears up to get back to in-person work once vaccines are made widely available and the pandemic finally recedes, companies of all sizes are re-evaluating their offices, headquarters, and facility portfolios for the post-COVID era. According to expert consultants, building owners and managers should invest in helping them create an integrated user experience.
“Companies are assessing their workplaces based on how well they support their mission, workflow, and valuation — something building owners and managers need to take into consideration,” says Brent Zeigler, AIA, IIDA, president and principal of the Boston and Atlanta-based Dyer Brown. “Planning effectively for the post-COVID commercial real estate market requires attention to every aspect of the user experience, as tenant firms evaluate space based on how it impacts on-the-job satisfaction, wellness, recruitment, retention, productivity, and related metrics.”
Zeigler and Dyer Brown colleagues Karen Bala, AIA, LEED AP and Sara Ross — director of design and director of corporate services, respectively — will share with virtual attendees a top-level view of leading-edge trends, with a focus on integrating technology to create a “frictionless” digital, virtual and physical user experience. Innovations covered will include property and building management systems, RFID tags, traffic flow analysis, web-based scheduling apps, technology-based food service, data collection and more.
