The BIG Meeting
After six years of visioning, planning, designing, permits and proposals around this project, we thought we were used to big meetings. But last week we held one that amazed us again. Twenty-seven members of our design and construction team sat elbow-to-elbow around a boardroom table to launch the first official construction meeting. This marked a crucial turning point as we make the transition from planning and site-prep to the construction that will restore and revitalize the site.
The meeting included our green building consultants; architects; construction crews; project managers; designers; mechanical, electrical, structural and civil engineers who discussed how to make the process run smoothly, efficiently and safely. With such a complex project with no real precedent, communication and planning are vital.
Away we go!
