Webinar Summary:

The ways people use and interact in commercial buildings – particularly office spaces -- will likely be changed significantly due to the COVID-19 crisis, with building and workplace health being a top concern, according to two healthy building experts featured on a webinar hosted by ULI’s Building Healthy Places Initiative. 

“Confronting COVID-19: Everything You Need To Know About Healthy Buildings Q&A Session,” provides insights from Joseph Allen, assistant professor at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and John Macomber, senior lecturer of business administration at Harvard Business School, on the role of the built environment in supporting health and wellness. It was moderated by ULI Senior Vice President Rachel MacCleery.

The event was the latest in a series of webinars offered by ULI to explore how the real estate industry is being affected by the virus and the industry’s response. According to Allen, the health of indoor spaces – where most people spend up to 90 percent of their time – is a highly critical but often overlooked component of overall health and wellbeing.
