Limited Capacity seats available

Having a passion for sustainable and high performance architecture isn’t enough to implement it meaningfully into practice. It takes a redefinition of the way firms think about design, how they structure project teams, and how they implement new technologies and tools at every stage of the design process. This session will provide guidance on creating frameworks that encourage performance based design and sustainable architecture in practice. These frameworks will cover initiatives that have an impact across an entire practice and firm-wide culture, versus just focusing on projects that have sustainability-minded clients.
