Event Austin AEC Responds to COVID-19

May 13, 2020 - 12:00pm

This event has already occurred.

In response to the profoundly strange times we are experiencing in our personal and professional lives, the BEC: Austin Committee is increasing programming activity and opening meetings to a wider audience in order to provide support for our local AEC community.

Please join us on Wednesday 5/13 at noon as we host a panel discussion that will represent GC, architect, and manufacturer perspectives. The panelists and their extended counterparts on the Zoom video conference will be describing how their organizations have been impacted by and are responding to the global COVID pandemic. Please support our community by attending this 1-hour panel and bringing your creativity, questions, and ideas.


Presenters: Kristof Irwin, George Wilcox, AIA, Brian Roeder, AIA, David Perez, and Phil Hilt

  1. Acquire information on how AEC (Architectural, Engineering, Contractor) firms are navigating the COVID-19 crisis to ensure the health and safety of their employees.
  2. Recognize approaches by AEC firms to maintain health relationships with their clients during a time when social distancing is required.
  3. Recognize processes used by AEC to navigate the COVID-19 crisis that could be used after stay at home measures are lifted to better serve the health and safety of their employees.
  4. Evaluate environmental effects that are occurring with design approaches and construction due to what we are learning from less people moving around.
