This week on The Weekly, BD+C editors spoke with leaders from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Henderson Engineers, and Shawmut Design & Construction on three timely topics:
• Is the open-plan office dead?
• Misconceptions around advanced infection control strategies like UV lighting and bi-polar ionization.
• The post-pandemic hotel and hospitality market, from the “competition for cleanliness” to the latest trends in amenities and features.
