COVID-19 Resources & Best Practices for Architecture Firms

  • 1.  COVID-19 Resources & Best Practices for Architecture Firms

    Posted 03-25-2020 01:39 PM

    Hi All,

    A handful of us have been working on developing the following living google doc:

    Covid 19 Architecture Firm Best Practices, Communications, and Policies

    We are working to update this document daily with content that we source from our architecture community - including resource links, best practices, etc...

    As far as I know, it is the only resource that is publishing internal communication and temp policies that are being created/sent to firms - but we could use more, especially from XS and S firms.

    If you are willing to share any of the communications/policies that have been created by your firm please forward it to We are carefully scrubbing all firm identifying information and organizing them into the document by firm size. The only communications where we keep the firm name are those that have been publically sent out on their email listserves.

    Please help us continue to grow this resource and let us know where we should be prioritizing our findings.

    For those of you that have transitioned to remote work and have best practices to share, please forward those as well.

    Thanks again - and hope you are all staying safe and healthy!
