Getting back to Work, the social-distancing way!

Nations are progressing towards relaxing the lockdown and reopening of activities to ensure that the economy does not collapse fully. People have started accepting that COVID-19 is to stay for long. People are getting back to work and thus it is a matter of urgent concern to transform offices into safe workspaces. A guide book to do the same is precisely what we all needed. ‘BACK TO WORK: Rethinking, Re-evaluating, Retrofitting for Safer Workplaces’ is an open-source handbook of post-lockdown guidelines and design interventions for contemporary offices. This book presents design strategies as the world embraces coexistence with COVID-19 where living and working while social distancing will become the ‘New Normal’. The handbook is a cheat-sheet of easy-to-apply solutions that can be retrofitted to existing workspaces of various scales and layouts.
