The Final 20%: Getting it Built
May 29 2020
8:00AM - 10:00AM
Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place
Registration closes April 1st 2:00 PM
By the time a project reaches the construction phase, a responsible structural engineer has identified and resolved all of the technical challenges large and small, and has clearly represented his or her design in the form of construction documents for use by the contractor. The construction phase should be nothing but smooth sailing, right? Why then is this not always the case? Typically only 20% of the design fee is billed to the client for the construction phase, but this value can be deceiving, as it does not necessarily correlate linearly with the level of time, effort, and stress that construction can involve. This year’s roundtable will explore some of the challenges of construction, and strive to foster discussion on best practices to keep the construction phase as efficient and stress-free as possible. A knowledgeable moderator will lead each of four discussion topics, and attendees will have the opportunity to rotate between each discussion. All attendees will be encouraged to participate by sharing their thoughts, experiences, and ideas relevant to these topics with each other.
The four topics of discussion will be:
“CA Proof” Design Drawings
Project Delivery Methods
Submittals in the Age of Automation
Communicating with Clients and Contractors
The event moderators are to be determined.
A light breakfast will be served!
2 PDH Credits will be offered (pending)
Registration opens at 7:45am. Seminar begins promptly at 8:00am
For SEAoNY, registration is $25 in advance
For non-members, registration is $35 in advance
For student members, registration is $5.
The event will take place at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place.
