With the current demand for healthcare workers PPE (personal protective equipment), it is not surprising that many individuals at home have stepped up to do what they can to alleviate this demand. Our resourceful nature allows us to contribute to the national issue at hand, and aid in supporting those working at the front lines of the current pandemic. Our staff at Number TEN are also trying to be as resourceful as possible by answering the call for PPE through 3D printing.

Now more than ever, we are hesitant to touch public surfaces. Whatever your new technique might be; like using your elbow to say hello, a disinfectant wipe to clean your grocery cart, or pulling your sleeve over your hand to open a door – we’re all guilty of doing something that just three weeks ago others would look at admonishingly.

As an Interior Designer, I rely on information provided by manufacturers and third-party certification agencies to make decisions about the furniture, equipment, fixtures and finishes I specify for projects. Some types of information are standardised across the industry, such as fire ratings for products and assemblies, or the coefficient of friction on a floor tile. Other types of information like data specifically related to environmental sustainability can be more difficult to source.

By Heather Anderson
Heather is a senior Professional Interior Designer and Hospitality & Entertainment Studio Lead at Number TEN Architectural Group. She recently added ‘Mom’ to her list of credentials when her son William was born in April 2018.

After 16 months away from the office on maternity leave with my son William, I’ve spent the last few weeks back at Number TEN refamiliarizing myself with professional life and adjusting to my new role as a working parent. While I’ve been pleased to find that my skills as a designer have returned ‘just like riding a bike’, I’ve found that motherhood has altered my perception of the built environment in many ways. Over the last year-and-a-half, I’ve learned to navigate building and landscape features with a baby (and now toddler) in tow and I’ve come across design solutions that both facilitate and hinder everyday activities.
