Jensen Joins Roundtable to Discuss Changes in Post-COVID Office Buildings

Consulting and Specifying Engineer (CSE) magazine recently hosted a roundtable of industry experts to discuss how employee health and safety is changing the way office buildings are designed in a post-pandemic environment.

ESD Studio Leader Tyler Jensen offered his expertise and opinions in the MEP roundtable article, “Office building design has changed,” published in the January/February 2022 issue of CSE magazine. Jensen joins other panelists from around the country in answering questions like “How are you working with building owners and facilities personnel to ensure workers can safely return to office building after COVID-19 shutdown?” Jensen points to ESD’s development of a rapid building wellness assessment program to help evaluate existing building systems and operations that may be candidates for modification to improve indoor air quality.

Other topics addressed in the article include:

  • Examples of recent, innovative, large-scale, or otherwise noteworthy projects
  • Designing offices to keep costs down while also offering appealing features, complying with codes, and meeting client needs.
  • Biggest industry trends and predictions for the next six to 12 months

In addition to the roundtable recap, the recent issue of CSE Magazine also features a cover story on evaporative cooling by ESD Senior Project Engineer Ben Olejniczak.

Tyler Jensen shares his broad experience as a mechanical engineer and project manager across a variety of markets to help fulfill ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.

Reach out to Tyler for questions about engineering design for high rise and other buildings to make facilities safer, healthier, and more efficient.
