Erin Khan’s adjustment to work-from-home life in light of COVID-19 has probably been a bit different than yours.

As the company’s construction solutions director, Khan spends most of her in-office days operating and facilitating colleagues’ use of one of Suffolk’s state-of-the-art CoLabs. At the center of this 530-square-foot space is a nine-screen, touch-enabled Data Wall.
Going from this to a laptop on a kitchen table would be quite a change.
But that wouldn’t be factoring in the CoLab’s adjacent wall-sized jobsite feed monitor, or the nearby “Huddlewall,” where Khan and colleagues use advanced projection technology to plan, model and scheme different elements of a construction project.
Another CoLab-included space that Khan doesn’t have in her home office is a virtual reality studio, fit with a floor-to-ceiling projection of mock ecosystems so her and her team can experience jobsite logistics in a life-like environment.
So, when Khan and her Suffolk colleagues made the switch to working from home in mid-March due to COVID-19, she went from having cutting-edge technology at her fingertips to working out of her trombonist husband’s makeshift music studio.
Instead of a Data Wall and a virtual reality studio, Khan’s home office features a typical desk, computer monitor and webcam—but also four or five trombones and a keyboard.
Still, though her environment and physical tools have changed, Khan said her and her team’s capabilities haven’t—because all of the CoLab technology can be accessed and used remotely.
As part of Bluebeam’s ongoing working remote video series, the Bluebeam Blog interviewed Khan to get more insight on her adjustment working from home and how h
