As we start to find our “new normal” in COVID-19, there are many trends becoming relevant in today’s commercial office space. Teleworking is here to stay, but workers who do return to the office will return to vastly different work configurations.

Join our panel of experts via video format, to learn more about the emerging, and ever-changing, trends in commercial offices. By the end of this video presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss how you can reduce your lighting operation costs and take advantage of the QIP “Qualified Improvement Property” tax.
  • Explain how you update your sequence of operation to include touchless interfaces, reduce energy costs, aid in building code compliance, occupant comfort.
