The project is an energy & carbon‐oriented study focusing on human behavior change due to short‐term
COVID‐19 epidemic and potential adoption of remote work (telework) policies in the future. By using
dynamic percentage of working‐from‐home ratio, a workflow is developed in order to predict the
impacts of behavior change on both energy and carbon patterns beyond the global pandemic. Due to
COVID‐19 pandemic, Perkins&Will is now adopting the rigorous social distancing measures across all
studios, including working from home. We expect the tool can prepare our management and design
thinking in the context of dynamic working behavior. By quantifying energy and carbon changes, we are
able to justify our future working policy, propose and implement more energy and carbon efficient
measures into our building design and operation.
