Seminar Descriptions:
Design-Build-Operate-Maintain: What could possibly go wrong?   Built solutions rely on numerous participants to plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain. This program takes a whimsical look at real world traps that can/do occur and offers a lessons learned perspective on how to mitigate/avoid recurrence.
Green Industrial HVAC Design   Industrial facilities present significant facility services design challenges. Resource consumption, usage, and discharge are significant. Project fundamentals are driven by process need and speed, not form response. This program identifies how green and sustainable themes can be incorporated into industrial design, construction, and operation.
Integrated Building Design   The quest of successfully providing a truly integrated building design (IBD) continues to challenge our industry and the built world. This program looks at these challenges, identifies barriers to success, and explores solutions to promote and achieve holistic IBD.
