We thought we knew about “worklife” concepts before COVID. Join GBI for an opportunity to explore how our new experience with worklife is likely to influence future design of three critical building types: Offices, Multifamily, and Long-term care facilities. Attendees will learn from expert panelists about emerging and existing design trends and best practices now applicable to our new worklife situations. This webinar will consist of brief presentations by each panelist, followed by an audience led Question & Answer session. A briefing packet with follow up resources will be made available to all registrants. We thought we knew about “worklife” concepts before COVID.
