Join us as we review several key initiatives spearheaded by DBIA’s Owner Advisor Committee and Owner Readiness Subcommittee. We’ll then explore the important topic of project preparedness with an overview of the Charles Pankow Foundation’s “Building Owners Assessment Tool” (BOAT), which is a new resource unveiled just last year. We’ll also cover the research currently underway by the Owner Readiness Subcommittee, which aims to optimize preparation for design-build delivery through training and education. From a deep dive into readiness metrics to deciphering the roadmap for implementation, gain firsthand insights into our ongoing efforts and explore the exciting work on the horizon!
