Impact of Coronavirus on Urban Design Practices
On the 14th April, The Urban Design Group shared a snapshot survey of Registered Urban Design Practices and how they are coping during the pandemic. edge take a moment and share the findings.
With significant changes to working habits, factors such as transport, land use and the demand for facilities close to offices and mixed-use town centres may begin to change as well. We believe that the experience of working remotely can bring overall improvements to how productive and flexible businesses are and how ready they are to deal with change.
The majority of practices have already furloughed staff and all practices were exploring the government support available.
The Urban Design Group will repeat this survey regularly, so please look out for edge sharing more of their findings in the upcoming months.
