This webinar is part of the series “Less Talk, More Action: Tactical Topics to Return to Campus,” jointly sponsored by SCUP’s North Atlantic Region, BSA, and their BSA/SCUP College + University Roundtable focused on the impact of COVID-19 on campuses.

This webinar will focus on how higher education campus construction is impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and its positive and negative implications on construction sites on the MIT and Northeastern University campuses. Panelists will share case studies of how on-campus construction has changed, the new supply chains, and staff management consideration. They will review construction opportunities due to the pandemic, and how to plan for modifying existing facilities to respond to evolving campus needs.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Discuss new construction requirements due to pandemic impacts, and the necessity of coordination.
  2. Consider construction supply and staff management with the “new norm” regulations.
  3. Consider new construction opportunities due to changes in facility management and planning.
  4. Examine specific campus construction sites, and how the current vs. future regulations are applied.
