Converting to digital systems: How architectural firms are dealing with the corona crisis

An interview with Allmann Sattler Wappner Architects on the changed working day in times of Corona.

How has everyday life in your office changed?
97% of 140 employees have been working from home office since last week. What we wanted to try out as a test suddenly became reality in the course of the week. The infrastructure was built up with a lot of energy and is running well. Communication takes place via telephone and video conferencing in a separate app with a corresponding project and various channels. The office is in principle physically closed.

How do you deal with the Corona crisis – do your projects continue?
We cannot yet make a final assessment of how the project situation will develop. The daily changes in the way the Corona crisis is handled will certainly spread to the construction sector at some point. However, at the moment we do not have the dramatic changes as in other sectors.
