The smart way to get your office ready for social distancing

July 15, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit business hard in many ways – but planning for a return to the office shouldn’t be one of them. After months of lockdown, getting back to your desks (with all the social buzz that implies) has never felt so appealing, but is it safe? It can be! And there’s an easy Social Distancing Tool for Offices to help you make it work.


Archilogic’s technology enables office designers to generate automated layout options quickly and easily. Start with uploading your floor plan, then use our auto-furnishing functionality to automatically place desks and furniture.  You can analyze the resultant desk layout for social distance, and adjust distancing parameters to match specific local guidelines.  Using the Editor, you can modify your layout until you’ve created a plan that’s safe and effective. 

This is useful for many situations beyond the current crisis. The interface shows a 3D floor plan that’s intuitive and easy to navigate, and built on a powerful engine that interprets your floor plan’s underlying data to yield meaningful information on everything from the number of doors and windows to the amount of daylight that reaches a particular desk, or the noisiest areas of the office. Our customers have been using the software to experiment with office design, to extract detailed information on their facilities (for example, determining the amount of wall space to get accurate quotes for painting), and so much more. But right now, safe social distancing is the most important topic for any office manager, and we’re here to help.
