There is a lot for building and office managers to consider as employees return to the workplace. Fortunately, ESD continues to lead the discovery and evaluation of industry trends and evolving technologies.
Our mission is Improving Society Through the Built Environment, and we have been actively exploring solutions that help achieve that mission. Thanks to the Living Lab vision of our headquarters in the Willis Tower, over the past couple of years we have piloted and tested many of the emerging technologies and solutions that are taking a front seat as the workforce prepares for reentry.
Amid this pandemic, we are helping clients define their use cases, navigate what’s possible to achieve their objectives, evaluate the plethora of solution offerings, and select what’s practical for their immediate and long-term needs. We help them understand the benefits, infrastructure, and cost implications of technologies – such as thermal sensing, contactless technologies, and workplace experience solutions – that promote healthier spaces.
Below is a brief conversation between ESD Practice Leader for Intelligent Building Technologies Mo Fahim and ESD Workplace Solutions Practice Leader Julie Lardenoit about what’s going on with the latest technology trends in the workplace.
