AIA-MBA Joint Committee Reception & Collaboration Discussion

Over the past three years, the AIA-MBA Joint Committee has hosted quarterly discussions that focused on improving the construction industry delivery process. The Joint Committee’s titled “Construction Owner Roundtables” featured discussion that concentrated on construction project milestones. Attendees at these meetings would provide input, sharing best practices, and from each session we captured the major points and featured them in The Project Collaboration Best Practices Guide.

On the night of Wednesday, March 30, at the Master Builders’ Association, the AIA-MBA Joint Committee would like to open our doors and invite the region’s construction industry for a reception and collaboration discussion so that we can share highlights from the Guide and the practical and specific recommendations contained within it that enable higher levels of collaboration in construction.

Intensive I

Presenters Dr. Robert Sroufe, Duquesne University, and Michael Carnahan, Scalo Solar, will discuss financial decision-making for sustainable design strategies in projects. Take an extended look into financing strategies that allow sustainability and high performance design features to be evaluated and incorporated into projects.  The delivery cycle of design, construction and operation will be explored in order to lend perspective in prioritizing sustainability measures.  Financing structures, tax implications, depreciation, incentives, rating systems and renewable energy strategies will be covered by concepts in lecture as well as in regional and national case studies. Concepts will be presented and bolstered by real case studies. The session will take place at Carnegie Mellon University and will include a light supper.
