COVID-19 Adaptive Reuse of Space

Various building spaces are being considered for alternative use during local, state, or federal COVID-19 public health response. Adaptive reuse could apply to healthcare, hospitality, education, commercial business buildings or large convention/sports venues. These spaces may be used for screening, triage, patient care, quarantine, staff quarters, or temporary housing occupancies. Yet, scientific evidence found opening facilities without proper water management commissioning services has led to waterborne disease cases and deaths. Water quality in unoccupied areas may not be safe for patient care operations or human consumption depending upon a variety of factors related to building occupancy type or the time the space has been dormant.
