SBC is pleased to provide the results of a recent report undertaken on our behalf that focuses on buildings’ design and operational responses to the Covid pandemic. This paper uses secondary research to provide a brief review of design and operational response to the pandemic noting that the need to live, work and shelter safely at home may have a fundamental impact on building characteristics. Interestingly, this expectation is not unlike the latest design paradigms as relate to resiliency and adaptability that were already occurring in the buildings sectors in response to climate change.
