AIA RE-OCCUPANCY ASSESSMENT TOOL
The AIA released a NEW
AIA Re-occupancy Assessment Tool
which provides a framework of strategies for re-opening buildings. Informed by authoritative sources (CDC, WHO, OSHA, etc.) and public health experts, the tool includes baseline parameters for re-occupancy, architectural and engineering strategies, and administrative policies that promote the health, safety, and welfare of the public while creating opportunities for non-essential facilities to provide services. Contact
for more information.
