Today, communication and processes are disjointed in design and construction. Work happens across tools, teams, and timelines, making it hard to keep everyone connected. It’s a constant challenge to reduce friction and meet project expectations. We believe there’s a better way. This engaging panel of AEC Industry representatives is tackling the difficult conversations required to change the experiences in the built environment productively. We will focus on the challenges of facing design-build teams and talk about the advantages of emerging technology.
