Collaborative Efforts Series

This Live Event happened on March 7, 2019 (7:00PM - 7:00PM CST)

“Recent strategies such as Progressive Design Build and Integrated Project Delivery are rapidly evolving, and coupled with the relentless advancement of digital technologies, these delivery methods are transforming the traditional relationships among owners, architects, and builders. With a growing body of evidence linking strong team collaboration to greater project success, project teams are becoming increasingly integrated and more transparent.” Robert Bostwick, AIA Project Delivery

Collaborative Efforts is a four-part series to provide knowledge and skills for any architect working in collaboration with owners, architects, consultants, engineers, contractors and sub-contractors, and for those who manage architect collaborators. Architects can positively impact project success through advanced collaboration, communication and leadership skills.
