The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things in our lives. One of the major changes is how people are going to work in a post pandemic world when they are allowed to return to an office building setting. Workers want to know that where they are working is environmentally safe and a place where they can collaborate and be productive. Technology is going to be at the forefront of the office environment changes. Everything from 3-D building models that provide a visual display of all building components and help to detect potential design issues and at the same time allow input from workers, to offsite construction that can quickly update and modernize a work-space are all going to be key to workers returning to their offices, or perhaps new offices. Of course, the key to all of that will be a contractor who is knowledgeable about the process and quick to acclimate to the ever-changing environment in the field as required.
