2016 SCHEDULE

PANEL 1: TUESDAY, 10.11.2016  
The Promise & Peril of Performance-Based Design

Panelists: Vince Cammalleri, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger; Gary Keith, FM Global; Tom O'Donnell, City of Boston Inspectional Services Division; Jeremy Schwartz, Safdie Architects
Moderator: Nathan Wittasek, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger

The last two decades have been characterized by significant advances in the technology and working methods used to design and construct buildings around the world. With powerful new methods for realizing and coordinating designs in real time, it has never been easier to efficiently design highly customized projects that have the potential to deliver substantial value to project stakeholders. In response to this new reality in the built environment, owners, designers, underwriters and regulatory entities have started to embrace performance based design as a means for managing a process that has opened up new opportunities, while exposing potential pitfalls where time tested prescriptive approaches are displaced.

PANEL 2: TUESDAY, 11.01.2016  
Great Expectations: Setting Up for Project Success

Panelists: Alexander Brown, Glaessel Ventures; Emily Dunne, CBT Architects; John Myers, Gilbane Building Company; Kristen Tomlinson, Northstar
Moderator: Susan Knack-Brown, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger

Disruptive change is coming to the AEC industry as both industry experts and outsiders are asking: Is there a better way? Our panelists will discuss how they incorporate process innovation (e.g., adoption of agile, cross-disciplinary teams) and technology development (e.g., prefabrication, virtual and augmented reality) to advance thinking and build better projects. We will also explore keys to setting projects up for success and how to confirm the course during construction using both traditional and non-traditional verification methods.


PANEL 3: TUESDAY, 12.06.2016 
Off the Rails: How to Right Projects that Go Astray

Panelists: Mike Benedetto, Skanska; Anthony Consigli, Consigli Construction Co., Inc.; Christopher Kenney, Kenney & Sams, P.C.; Benjamin Lavery, MITIMCo
Moderator: Francesco Spagna, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger

Best-laid plans can always go astray, both for typical and atypical projects. How disruptive or acrimonious challenges become often depends upon how team members react to issues when they arise. This panel will debate best practices to address how to plan for and react to unexpected problems. They will also discuss how to address issues to get the best finished product and how to protect your firm from liability.
