Returning to the workplace during COVID-19

From physical distancing and people movement to safer air quality, Autodesk has tools and resources that can help you and your customers solve for the design challenges of COVID-19.

Plan spaces for new health guidelines

As more people return to the workplace, design decisions take on new significance. Whether you’re designing for the safe arrangement of desks, the width or spacing of aisles, or other needs. Dynamo and Generative Design in Autodesk Revit bring informed decision-making to design exploration.

Get people moving with confidence

Health recommendations are changing the way people move inside airports and transit hubs and from their cars to their desks as they return to the workplace. Mobility Simulation in Autodesk InfraWorks models people movement, bringing data-driven insight to physical-distancing needs and efficiency of travel.

Design for safer air quality

Indoor air quality and proper ventilation make a significant difference for the safety of employees and customers. With Autodesk CFD, computational fluid dynamics simulation can be used to identify areas of risk and then explore multiple mitigation strategies for occupant safety—before making any physical changes to the building.

Make your jobsites and teams resilient

Construction has undergone rapid transformation in the past decade, and COVID-19 is accelerating change like never before—from new requirements for physical distancing and impacts to supply chains to the sudden need for remote work. Understand how you can innovate quickly to maintain jobsite safety and keep your projects on track.
