Your building designs – a unique source of data to fight COVID-19 | Pandemic Safe Buildings |

"...our objective is to advise business leaders on what they can do to prevent COVID-19 transmission through their facilities, hence we needed a model for how infection spreads within indoor spaces. Although we can see that a large volume of research has been done on the epidemiology of the virus, no single efforts have integrated infection, human movement and facility engineering modelling which can be instantly applied to workspaces. Creating this holistic view has been a key product of our prototype development."

Lorien Pratt's insight:

To  maximize pandemic safety, you need to go beyond simply tracking virus movement to also understanding human movement and the effect of the interventions that you place within your building.
