COMING OUT OF COVID
Infrastructure after COVID - What will it look like?

INFRASTRUCTURE AFTER COVID - WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE?

Infrastructure Intelligence has launched a new webinar series to help the construction sector grapple with the key issues as the UK enters the latest stage in the fight against the coronavirus.

The webinars, which will run every Friday at 11am throughout the summer, will focus on the role of infrastructure investment in the economic recovery, building industry resilience, changing business models and communications in the new digital landscape and continue the good work laid by ACE's Navigating COVID-19 series which helped members deal with the immediate issues highlighted in the COVID crisis.

The COVID-19 crisis has changed the way that everyone works and lives. Social distancing is set to be with us for some time to come as countries try and adjust to keeping people safe and society functioning efficiently in a future post-COVID world. Transportation vehicles, public spaces, shared spaces and office spaces are likely to need remodelling and it is clear that there will be significant implications for infrastructure going forward. But what will this future infrastructure look like? How can it be made more resilient? How will our towns and cities be designed in the new normal? Are we entering an era of greener infrastructure development that is more suited to a world where mass transport is not as important as it once was and where remote working and the use of digital technologies is more widespread? How will the COVID-19 crisis shape our future infrastructure? This webinar will explore all these questions and more.
