Resilience 2021: The Pandemic’s Impact on Technology in the Built Environment
Jul 13, 2021 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
The Pandemic Accelerated the Move to Virtual Work Environments. The Built Environment Adapted and Excelled with New Technology.
The COVID-19 crisis presented architecture, engineering and construction companies with an enormous challenge: transitioning an industry long reliant on personal relationships and in-person connections to a remote, digital environment. Like other hands-on sectors, builders and other trades can’t ply their trades over Zoom. However, the pandemic accelerated the need to bring building sites into the digital era through automated tools. Digital technology played a critical role in getting the $11 trillion construction industry back on its feet. The shift seen in the building industry not only shows its resilience, but it is one of the major positive changes to emerge from the crisis.
Join us for the next installment of the Resilience 21 webinar series as we discuss:
- Safety and efficiency of virtual inspections
- Carbon footprint reductions
