It’s no secret that the Coronavirus epidemic of 2020 has taken the whole world by surprise with new laws and prohibitions on daily life, putting a toll on people and companies alike.
Lockdown has come as a surprise to the whole country, and we have had to get used to the ‘new-normal way of life in order to adapt and survive, as, sadly, we cannot know when the end of this virus’s reign over the globe will come to an end.
We’ve been watching companies and enterprises across the globe revolutionize their way of doing business to comply with new legislation, put in place to protect our nation from the Coronavirus epidemic, and minimize global deaths.
The architecture industry is one industry that has had to revolutionize its conduct of business more than others.
The Biggest Influence of Coronavirus in the Business World
One of the most noticeable aspects in which Covid-19 has changed the working world for most sectors, not just the architecture sector, is to prohibit non-essential workers in any workplace. This has intensified the goal of increasingly moving enterprise office settings to virtual/cloud-based workspaces.
This idea first entered into the equation in the early 2000’s, and slow incorporation came into effect soon afterwards, but as it stands, corporate meetings and business as normal take place from home, across numerous connecting channels, making this aim a possibility as we talk and with online learning for scholars of differing ages, almost seamlessly up and running and readily available.
How did Covid 19 affect architects?
Architects, in particular, have, sadly, had a two-fold impact on companies due to the Coronavirus epidemic with prohibitions and legislation. Not only has the way architects work on a day-to-day basis, in the workplace and with clients changed, but the way they build has also changed.
Architects had to switch to teamwork tools to allow several separate individuals to collaborate together on a collaborative project, all at the same time. Instead of building their PC and sketch pads, we have seen a big change to electronic tablets that serve as portable sketch pads, fitted with smart mark-up and analysis processes that enable architects around the world to replicate their office and office equipment with remote office alternatives.
