ACA Pulse Check no. 1 - COVID-19

15 March 2020

THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. Access the preliminary findings here

The ACA’s quick ‘pulse check’ survey will help us better understand the impact of COVID-19 on Australian architectural practices. 

The government’s advice on measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 is developing hourly. The ACA is responding with timely guidance and we now issue a brief “pulse check” survey to better understand how your practices will be affected – it should only take a couple of minutes to fill out.

Many architects will find that simple directives to “work from home” are not as easy as just unplugging your BIM/CAD workstation from the office and taking it home. Many of your contract agreements won’t necessarily allow for extensions of time, and stimulus packages won’t pay the bills for long if projects are cancelled or delayed.

We need to understand how ACA can help you and your people, and we need to get this information to policymakers over the coming weeks. We’ll probably repeat the survey to gain more data in a few weeks’ time.

Whether you are an ACA member or not, please get one person from your practice in each state to complete this survey as soon as possible – the more responses, the better the data.
